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.

Now that you are in university, your lecturers are expecting you to use academic/scholarly resources. This means that you will need to learn how to use the library resources effectively as relying on Google will not get you a decent grade. Work through the following steps to become acquainted with our resources:

Step 1 - Watch the Effective Reading video (shows you how to skim, scan, and read in depth. Useful techniques for research and weekly readings)

Step 2 - Watch the Advanced Search Techniques using the Library's Discovery Service video (this is a longer video but is KEY for successful research at the university level)

Step 3 - Watch all four of the Finding Resources in Lexis and Westlaw videos (you will have to utilise both legal databases in for your work)

Step 4 - Book an appointment with your librarians so you can ask questions, gain clarity on certain resources, and receive feedback.


Inlcudes HeinOnline, LexisNexis, vLex Justis, and Westlaw.
