New: Law Library knowledge clips

      Comments Off on New: Law Library knowledge clips

The Law Library has recorded some knowledge clips to help students (and staff) get started searching for legal information. Three videos are currently available to help you find different document types: legal literature, EU legislation and UN treaties, and case notes.

Finding legal literature
This video covers the initial steps to take when you're given a research assignment. First, you will get some tips on developing a research strategy. In the second part of the video, you will learn several advanced search techniques using examples in Google Scholar, HeinOnline, and NexisUni.
More information can be found on the Law Library's website in the research guides Legal Literature and Searching, writing and citing.

Finding EU legislation and UN treaties
In this video, you will learn how to find EU legislation in EUR-Lex and UN treaties in the United Nations Treaty Collection. More information is available on the Library's website in the guide Legislation and Treaties and the manual How to find a treaty.

Finding case notes
This video shows how to find case law in EUR-Lex and Westlaw. In particular, you will learn how to search for case notes related to the cases that you have found. An overview of more resources for finding international case law is available on the Library's website in the Case law guide.
