New resources available on Westlaw

Library Services now provides all current City students access to a huge range of books and looseleaf encyclopaedias on Westlaw.

Previously, access was limited to a small selection of titles such as The White Book, Archbold, and Palmer’s Company Law. Our new extended subscription gives access to over 300 books, including 66 looseleaf works  and all the Common Law Library titles.

What subjects are covered?

These titles cover a lot of different law topics: Company & Commercial, Crime, EU and International Law, Land and Property, Litigation, Tort and many more.

There are now 9 new arbitration titles in the collection, for example Davidson on Arbitration, Handbook of UNCITRAL Arbitration, and Russell on Arbitration.

Shipping books such as Snell’s Equity, Kennedy Rose on the Law of Salvage, and Scrutton on Charter parties are now available online, which means you don’t have to wait to get your hands on it!

We also subscribe to 66 looseleaf works. This means you don’t have to come to the library to access important material such as UK Oil & Gas law; Mitchell, Taylor and Talbot on Confiscation and the Proceeds of Crime; or Emmett & Farrand on Title. It’s all available from your computer and you can access it from everywhere.

You also have now access to all the Common Law Library titles, such as: Bowstead & Reynolds On Agency; Gatley on Libel and Slander; Goff & Jones: The Law of Unjust Enrichment and many others.

If you’re already writing your dissertation, you’ll be happy to know that, thanks to this, the library is in a better position to support you as even more content will be accessible remotely.

Not a law student? We have a lot of titles on banking and finance, and also business, accounting and health and social care.
