Welcome to the Subject Guide for Law

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

If you're brand new to York (or even if you aren't...) you may find our New Students Quickstart Guide useful. It will give you a To Do list to get you started; if you have any questions, let us know. In the meantime, go on a Virtual Tour of the Library

The library is open 24/7 from May 1 to June 3

I am trained to provide you with guidance on how to use Westlaw most effectively. Thus, this year I will be offering certification sessions and 1-2-1 drop-in sessions in which we will be working on improving research methods when using Westlaw. Please do not hesitate to email me. I aim to reply to them as soon as possible:
