Welcome to the Law subject page.  This guide highlights the key resources for your subject area, and the key services and facilities available from the Library.

Getting started

All required reading for your modules should be available from your online reading lists. In addition to prescribed reading, when doing your own research ‘beyond your reading list’, LibrarySearch is a quick and easy way to simultaneously search for academic content across a number of different sources. If you get stuck, contact your Academic Librarian.

Legal databases

In addition to LibrarySearch, we also have access to the following key legal databases providing access to cases, legislation and legal journal titles. Content from these is not included on LibrarySearch so will need to be searched separately. 

Remember, whilst some content can overlap, each provide access to unique resources. If what you're after isn't in one, try the other.

  • Westlaw UK
    Legislation, case law (including EU legislation and case law) and legal journals.
