Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
This stretch of the Law Library contains The Law Reports series: Appeal Cases (AC), Chancery Division (Ch), Family Division (Fam) and the Queen's Bench Division (QB), the Weekly Law Reports and the All England Law Reports.
Law reporting was regularised in the late nineteenth century, and that is why we have the older English Reports from before 1865 in the British Law Reports room. The reports effectively continue from then to the present day in The Law Reports series found here.
The Law Reports are fundamental to your law studies, as such we have a duplicate set in the Silent Study Area and they can be found online through our legal database subscriptions.
