    Hello!

    I need to write the following words in a text, but don't know if i should put a hyphen in-betwenn the words:

    it law [it-law]
    it network [it-network]

    Can anyone help and tell me which way it is right (and according to which rule)?

    Thank You

    Hi paule 11

    As an NES, but not a teacher:

    By "it", do you mean "Information Technology", in which case I would write it as "IT law/network" i.e. in capitals and without a hyphen.

    Hope this helps

    Regards
