Oxford Legal Research Library (OLRL)

Included in the Encore catalogue

Oxford Legal Research Library (OLRL) is a database containing collections of leading works published by Oxford University Press (OUP). 


OLRL is available onsite and offsite to all academic members of IALS Library. 


IALS Library’s OLRL subscription includes four e-book collections:

  • International Commercial Arbitration
  • International Commercial Law
  • Financial and Banking Law
  • Private International Law 

New titles and editions are regularly added to the platform. 


The database can be browsed by area of law (the four collections listed above) and by individual subject within a collection. It is also possible to browse by author. 


Quick and Advanced Search facilities are available. Quick Search covers all four collections, whereas the Advanced allows users to select one or more collections.  Alternatively, select a collection from ‘Area of law, then search that module using the ‘Search within results’ facility.


Help pages and FAQs are available via links at the top of the screen.
