Welcome to the Library and Learning Services (LLS) support site for Law. This site contains subject-specific advice and links to videos and tutorials, which will help you improve your skills in finding, using and evaluating information for success on your course.
Please also have a look at the Legal Information Resources Guide (under the Search section) which provides an overview of the key sources available.
You can book an appointment with me or one of my colleagues for help with literature searching and referencing. I can offer help via telephone or email. You can book a 1:1 appointment or attend a 10 minute Drop-In session using our online student app.
First things first, you need to think about what it is you have been tasked to do.
It would be a good idea to organise your thoughts at this stage and start a mindmap to help. You can always change it or add to it later.
If you don't understand your research question, you may need to discuss this further with your tutor or, if there is an opportunity, raise your questions in class. If you don't understand a concept or idea that is included in an assignment brief, it may worth looking for an introductory book in the library that would help you. Don't forget, there are many online books now and you can search for these via NELSON.
