One-to-one reference advice sessions are now available in IALS Library

Do you need help finding relevant information for your legal research? Are you unsure where to find materials for your essay, dissertation or thesis? Do you need assistance with a legal database such as Lexis, Westlaw or HeinOnline? Do you have questions about OSCOLA?

Why not sign up for a 30 minute one-to-one advice session with an IALS Reference Librarian? We can help you with:

  • Finding books, journal articles and other materials for a particular piece of research
  • Advice on which database to use
  • Constructing effective searches
  • Identifying words and phrases for use in a search
  • Narrowing your search results
  • Finding foreign and international laws in print and online
  • Citing resources using OSCOLA
  • Or perhaps you just don’t know where to start with your research
