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!

Library Loves Feedback Pop-Ups: 20th-24th November

All this week Library Staff will be popping-up across the University to find out what you think about Library Services. We’d like to know what you love and why you love it: plus, your ideas for how we can improve things too.

Your feedback really does make a difference: it helps us plan and make changes for the benefit of everyone who uses the Library’s services, resources and spaces.

As well as librarians popping-up everywhere and chatting in-person, we’ll also have Feedback Walls at all of our sites so that you can post your comments anonymously: you’ll also be able to read other people’s thoughts as well as any responses from Library Staff.
