APOD is the Association of Publishers of Online Legal Documents.
Not to be confused with the Astronomy Photograph of the Day, APOD was created by ContractStore and other online legal publishers, to raise awareness of the supply of online legal documents, as an affordable and reliable alternative to costly high street professional legal services.
The association will also serve as an education tool for businesses as to which legal documentation is required to protect their interests, in various matters from employment to trading agreements. APOD also provides guidance on good practice and assessing the quality of online contract template publishers. www.apod.org.uk
