Our Christmas blog series is back.  After the 12 (Legal) Days of Christmas and our Legal Christmas Carol Service  we have decided this year to go with Christmas traditions throughout the world (and some in the UK).  So if you have ever wondered if there could be any links between turkey and law or  how Santa Claus negotiates all those borders then keep track of our blog over the next few weeks to find out.  As usual the links may be very tenuous but we will do our best!

As we wind down Michaelmas Term with our annual festive cheer (starting from tomorrow with our blog on Christmas cards) we will run through some resources you may be familiar with but some you may not know we had.   Remember that you can access most of our electronic sources from anywhere.

Legal databasesSo if you fancy doing a spot of research away from Oxford then all you need to do is look at the link within square brackets alongside the database on our Legal Database page to find out how to access the database externally.

Capture The majority of databases can be accessed by just logging into SOLO or Oxlip+ using your Oxford Single Sign On in the top right.

So from Christmas crackers to singing bees, the Nutcracker to Thailand, join us as we look as some of the festive traditions and related legal resources.
