Law: Books

Quick online guidance on print and electronic law books

The University has access to thousands of ebooks from legal publishers such as Oxford, Hart, Cambridge and Bloomsbury - to name just a few!  These individual titles are available via Library Search with a link to the full text.

However some books, particularly non textbook material such as specialised practitioner works and reference works are only accessible via the specialist legal databases.  These materials will not always appear via Library Search so be prepared to use Library Search and the Law Databases to discover all the information that is available to you.

You may also want to use the legal databases to access ebooks so that you can take advantage of related and linked materials that are presented via the databases.  For example, if you are using an ebook on Lexis or Westlaw you will be linked through to cited legislation, case law and journal articles.

Use the Law Databases in the Databases A-Z List to access content.
