‘Tesco Law’ became a reality this week with the launch of the supermarket giant’s online legal store.
Customers are welcomed to the site with the slogan: ‘Lawyers can be expensive - why not see if you can handle the problem yourself?” However Tesco cannot yet offer legal services, instead referring users to the Law Society, the Law Society of Scotland and the Legal Services Commission of Northern Ireland to search for solicitors.
The website offers customers a variety of legal documents and guides, including a “Last Will and Testament Kit” at £9.99 and “House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing” for £11.99.
The Law Society welcomed the service, saying it will encourage members of the public to seek legal advice.
