Please follow the links below to see the most recent news and updates from:
Westlaw – including the news that the English Reports (1220 -1867) are being gradually added to Westlaw. You will find that many of the reports are already available. Any that are not there already should be added by the end of April. In addition the journals The European Lawyer (2000-) and The African Journal of International and Comparative Law (2005-) have also been added to Westlaw.
The Westlaw newsletter also includes an item on linking between Lawtel and Westlaw. These links are not working for us yet but I hope that this will be rectified soon.
HeinOnline – including the addition of University of Western Australia Law Review.
IBFD (International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation) Newsletter – tax news.
Other databases news including…
i-law– has a new interface. To remind you i-law include law reports and journals in the fields of insurance, intellectual property and construction law. Titles of particular interest include the Lloyd’s Law Reports and Lloyd’s Maritime and Commercial Quarterly.
When you arrive at the new i-law home page browse or search to find articles or reports in the normal way.
When you follow a link to a document a login box will appear with the message “the rest of this document is only available to i-law subscribers”. Do not be detered! The login box will already be partially filled out with Oxford University’s details. Simply fill in YOUR OWN email address. You will then be taken to the terms and conditions and from there to the full text document.
Globalex – has new guides to primary and secondary sources for comparative civil procedure, Malawi and Sri Lanka.
