Westlaw UK training: finding legislation

A video from Westlaw UK on how to find legislation using this database.

The law librarian has created a subject guide for law students that you will find useful when looking for legal materials. It includes information about legislation and cases and how to find them. Please remember that the UK Law guide provides information on referencing for law students (OSCOLA) which is different from the referencing style social work students must use (BU Harvard). Please consult with the BU Harvard guide for referencing legal materials.

Help and support

In the first instance, please use the library chat service or contact the library team who supports the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, rather than the Faculty of Media & Communication library team or the law librarian.
