Online Legal Research

These pages are to help you learn how to do legal research online to find cases, legislation and journal articles, using Westlaw, Lexis and HeinOnline.

On each page you will find a short video which will show you how to use the database in question. There will be an exercise for each database to give you an introduction to the kinds of material you can find using Westlaw, Lexis and HeinOnline.

Some of you may have used these databases before, in which case the exercises should seem very easy!

If you have any questions at all, please contact Caroline Ball (contact details to the left). Workshops will also be available throughout the year - for details, check the events calendar.
