Purchase options for How-to Guides

How-to Guides can be bought by annual subscription or purchased individually. An annual subscription allowing full access to all our How-to Guides for a period of one year costs £20. Individual guides can be purchased for £2.

How does it work?

Annual subscriptions and individual guides are purchased through PayPal. You don't need to have a PayPal account in order to use this service - you can pay with any standard debit or credit card.

All How-to Guides can be viewed on screen and can also be printed in 'print friendly' versions.

Buying an annual subscription

To buy an annual subscription to our How-to Guides you must first register as a subscriber to this site.

Click on the Register button. You will be taken to the registration page. After submitting your registration, you will receive an email with a link back to the site to set your password. (Depending on your settings, this email may be filtered to your junk mail. It will be sent from CLAS@coramclc.org.uk with a subject line of 'Your username and password info’.)

Click on the link in the email. The site will automatically suggest a strong password. Copy or make a note of this. Should you prefer, you can also enter your own password. Press 'Reset password'. You can now login with your username and password.

On the login welcome page, you will find a PayPal button allowing you to purchase an annual subscription to the How-to Guides.

When logged in you will have full access to the guides you have purchased for a period of 12 months. After this period, should you wish to continue with access, please purchase another annual subscription. Purchase of an annual subscription also affords you the status of ‘membership’ of the Child Law Advice website. We will be providing further on-line services for our members in due course.


Buying an individual guide

To buy a single guide, click on the PayPal button next to the guide you wish to purchase in the list below.

You will be taken to the PayPal website where you can pay for the individual guide using your existing PayPal account or with a credit or debit card.

Once purchased, a link will be emailed to you giving you access to that page. Using this unique link, you may visit the page as many times as you like for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase.

(If you do not receive the email, please check your junk mail before contacting us. Thank you.)

No registration on the site is necessary with the purchase of individual guides.
