Westlaw UK is on online service providing legal materials relating to the the UK and the European Union. Australian, Canadian, US, international and other materials are also available, via the "Westlaw International" link from the "Services" menu on the UK homepage.
Westlaw is available onsite to all academic members of the Library. Remote access is only available to those based at IALS; other members should check with their own college or university library about offsite access.
UK and EU: There is a basic search facility on the home page. Search facilities tailored to specific types of materials - e.g. cases, legislation, journals - can be accessed via the links across the top of the screen; advanced search options are also available via these links.
Non-UK, non-EU: use the Services menu on the Westlaw UK home page and click on "Westlaw International". For Canadian materials, use LawSource tab; for US state materials, use Law School Classic tab; for other jurisdictions, select from the directory on the home page.
Once you have done a search, you can save, print or email the results using the icons towards the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Detailed help files are available throughout the database via the "Help" link in the top right-hand corner. Westlaw UK also has substantial context-specific help pages, e.g. "Legislation Help and Coverage" on the Legislation screen.
