Are you a returning Newcastle Law School student? Welcome back!
There have been some changes while you’ve been away (have you seen the Philip Robinson Library? No? Go take a look…!) but importantly for you, Westlaw UK has had a makeover.
Legal research is an essential element of your studies at Newcastle Law School so don’t be put off by the change.
You can still browse for cases, legislation, journals (using the Legal Journals Index) and current awareness.
Selecting United States and International sources will launch a new browser window – just change your default Region from UK to US or International.
See the Get Started guide for an overview.
Read Lucy’s post for more information on the changes: https://blogs.ncl.ac.uk/subject-support/2019/06/20/westlaw-platform-upgrade/.
If you have any questions about the interface, or want a refresher on how to use Westlaw, contact your Student Representative – Darby Okafor. He’ll be announcing details of his Eldon Cluster drop-in sessions for this semester soon via Facebook (@TRFLLNewcastleUniversity) but drop him a line if you need assistance before then: D.Okafor@ncl.ac.uk.
