About Us

Background

PIBULJ.COM or give it its full title, The Personal Injury Brief Update Law Journal, was launched in 2006 and has grown to be the UK's leading online personal injury journal. It provides around 25 new articles each month on a wide variety of topics from liability and quantum to costs, civil procedure, credit hire and fraud and has an archive of around 800 articles. It is registered for CPD for solicitors and barristers and so a single subscription can provide each practitioner with up to 12 hours CPD (and it also qualifies for ILEX CPD too). The articles have been written by over 200 barristers, solicitors and other experts and provide practical guidance specifically aimed at the busy personal injury practitioner. A subscription also provides access to a variety of webinars on PIBULJ.TV as well as online access to a number of relevant books.

Alongside the subscription Journal, we also provide a free personal injury newsletter by email called Personal Injury Brief Update (PIBU). This was launched in 2002 and has since grown into what is now a staple for the PI industry going out to around 11,000 people each month.

All of these are published by Law Brief Publishing Ltd  which was co-founded by Tim Kevan and Garry Wright (see below).
