This page will help you get more out of your Library resources for your assignments, projects, and dissertations in Law.

REMINDER: Download the University VPN system to access these resources while on or off campus.

If this is your first time referencing with OSCOLA, go through these resources in order:

Step 1 - Read Section 1 General notes of the official OSCOLA guide (this will introduce you to the very basics)

Step 2 - Watch the Referencing Tips & OSCOLA video (this provides more visual instruction) 

Step 3 - Watch all five of the OSCOLA videos (these are the most common resources you will be working with)

Step 4 - Look at the referencing examples (these show you how your assignments should be formatted)

Step 5 - Set up an appointment with the Academic Skills Tutors (they will help you improve your legal writing)

Step 6 - Book an appointment with your law librarians (they will answer all of your referencing and research questions!)


Warning: do NOT use reference generators as these are NOT OSCOLA compliant and you will lose marks.
