General legal databases

Specialist and practitioner databases

What are databases?


Library databases are online resources you can search to find reliable information from trusted sources.  Databases can be general or subject specific and can include a wide range of content including full text journal articles, ebooks, reports, abstracts, conference proceedings etc. Legal databases also include case reports,  legislation and resources/guidance for practitioners. 

Library Search is a database of databases and allow to search the content of most databases in one go. However, it misses out the content of legal databases (including cases and legislation) so you will need to search both Library Search and the legal databases for a comprehensive search.

The databases listed on the left are legal databases. Check this link for a list of all individual databases bought by the library.
