Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
The Specialist Law Reports room contains law reports that deal with particular areas of law. For example: Lloyd's Law Reports (which are published in relation to shipping), Industrial Relations Law Reports (employment and labour law), Road Traffic Reports, Criminal Appeal Reports, and a sub-series of the Criminal Appeal Reports: Sentencing which details the sentences delivered on the defendants following a guilty verdict.
We have a wide selection of these law reports held in this room within the Law Library, but you will also be able to access some titles online via Lexis, Westlaw and Library Search.
Turn around and look for pause point Law 7 - British Law Reports
We love using print resources here in the Law Library, but as a registered student or member of staff, you have access to a multitude of excellent and comprehensive online resources. One of the most popular legal databases is Westlaw Edge UK which is listed on our Law Subject Guide. You can use the Westlaw Topics page to browse by subject through law reports (those you find on the shelves here in the Specialist Law Reports room), legislation, e-books and journal articles.
You will be introduced to Westlaw Edge UK as part of your induction programme, but if you want a sneak peek at the database in advance, you can watch this short video (4:42 mins).
