Oxford Legal Research Library

Library services now gives you access to the Oxford Legal Research Library online platform, where you can read over 90 books on four different areas: International Commercial Arbitration, International Commercial Law, Financial Banking, and Private International Law.

What titles are available?

A few titles are relevant, whether you’re a postgraduate student, an undergraduate or a distance learner.

For example, if you are taking a module on International Commercial Law, you have access to key texts such as Goode’s “Transnational Commercial Law: Texts, Cases and Materials”; or “The International Sale of Goods” and “The Sale of Goods” both written by Michael Bridge. All these titles used to only be available in print, while now you can access them from wherever you are. A book on the topic which we didn’t use to have access to, is “Schlechtriem & Schwenzer: Commentary on the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods”, the most authoritative commentary on the CISG.

If you are studying Financial and Banking Law, you will be happy to know that we have access to “Mann on the Legal Aspect of Money”, which analyses both private and public law of money. You also have access to “McKnight, Paterson, and Zakrzewski on The Law of International Finance” which analyses English law relating to international finance transactions

The UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules: A Commentary” is a great resource if you’re studying International Commercial Arbitration, as it explains the UNCITRAL Rules recommended for use in 1976 by the United Nations.

How do I get a list of all the titles?

Once you’re logged in, look at the menu on the right hand-side and click on “Title List”: in this way you can browse all the available books, even if you don’t know the title!

How do I access the Oxford Legal Research Library?

To access it, search for “Oxford Legal Research Library” in our catalogue (www.city.ac.uk/library). Log in using your City username and password.

Library Services also provides access to Oxford Competition Law.
