THE LIBRARY CAN HELP PREPARE YOU FOR YOUR PLR

Workshops on Online Legal Research will take place between 10th – 14th October and Saturday 22nd October at various times (see below)

We will show you how to use the Lexis Library and Westlaw databases for legal research. We will work through a legal problem and demonstrate how you start with Halsbury’s Laws as a secondary legal source to find a description of the law and move on to use Halsbury’s Statutes as a primary legal source to look up the actual law. Additionally, we will show you how to search for cases on the Westlaw database. We will also look at sources of commentary such as legal journals, practitioner texts, legal encyclopaedias and dictionaries all available on both LexisLibrary and Westlaw.
