Introducing your Westlaw Student Rep




Posted on behalf of Hannah Joad, Westlaw Student Rep 2014/15

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

My name is Hannah and I am your Westlaw Representative for the current academic year.

My role is to help students use Westlaw effectively so that they learn to become efficient researchers. This is important not only whilst you are here at the University of Law, but also because excellent research skills are essential to facilitate a successful career in the legal profession.

I have created a Facebook page and included the link in this email. You can ask me any questions via the Facebook page. I will also post regular statuses about drop – in clinics and useful advice about using Westlaw, so I recommend that you ‘Like’ the page.

I plan to run drop – in clinics on Mondays and Thursdays at 12.15 – 1.15 in IT Room 216 (ground floor of the Learning Resource Centre).

There is also a Westlaw notice board in the upstairs foyer of the Learning Resource Centre where I will post any information or news.

As you are probably already aware, there are Westlaw training sessions running in October conducted by one of Thomson Reuters’s external trainers. Information on these sessions is available on the Library website for our Guildford campus on Elite. I advise anyone who is not familiar with Westlaw, or anyone wanting to refresh their existing knowledge, to attend one of these sessions as it will be extremely useful.

If you would like to contact me personally about any Westlaw queries, my email address is

I look forward to meeting you over the coming academic year.

Best wishes,

Hannah Joad
