Welcome to the Subject Guide for Law

Welcome to this Subject Guide, which brings together key resources and information for students and staff in the Department.

If you're leaving us in the summer, please don't forget to bring those books back before you go! Either in person or by post. 

Don’t leave your books in book jail!  Books can still be recalled over the summer. If you’re away from York, either return the books to us before you go, or take them with you to post back if required.

Referencing guide for Law

The Law department uses the OSCOLA referencing style.
