Of course you do if you’re a student in the Law School, but other subject disciplines use legal information as well. Areas of law such as employment, health, media, planning and safety are potentially of interest to students and staff in a variety of faculties and departments, including Management, Town & Regional Planning, Journalism, Engineering and Medicine.
There are two legal databases, Lexis and Westlaw that are widely used by law students and by law firms. Both employ friendly, helpful student associates on campus, and you can contact them for help in using the databases. The associate for Lexis is Emmi Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org and the associate for Westlaw is Trish Hughes email@example.com
Check out the subject guide for law on the library web if you’d like to find out more about legal databases and websites. If you need more information about resources for legal research, contact the Library subject specialist for law, Maria Mawson firstname.lastname@example.org .
