International Legal Materials on Westlaw

westlaw2Westlaw have introduced a new service for accessing international legal materials.

The new service is called WestlawNext and is intended as more user friendly platform to make your international research more efficient and effective.

Access the service via the Westlaw entry on the Library catalogue.  You have both on campus and off campus options available to you for login.

If you experience any problems with off campus access, please use the VPN service which will enable you to connect to the University campus network from offsite.  You can then use the on campus links for access as your VPN enabled computer will operate as if it is on the University IP network,  Full instructions on accessing the University network from other locations with VPN are available.

The new service is available by selecting International Materials from the Services menu on the top menus bar  of Westlaw UK.


You will be able to see two links under the services tab on Westlaw UK for Westlaw International and International Materials over the next few weeks, but from 18 December 2015 access to the current Westlaw International platform will no longer be available.
