The Library: Law

This guide is managed by your Academic Librarians and contains links to the key subscription resources for Law. Explore sections of the guide using the top menu.

This is because Skills for Learning live events have finished for this academic year. You can find recordings of sessions that ran this year on a range of topics on our Building on Feedback page.

Your Academic Librarians encourage you to:

  • use academic resources 
  • examine the assignment marking criteria
  • research systematically by narrowing search terms and identifying common themes
  • accurately reference and avoid plagiarism to meet the expectations of a UK university
  • develop academic debate and critical thinking skills
