Law: Overview


Welcome to the Law guide. Throughout the guide's sections you'll find our suggestions for key resources and information in this subject area.

The law collection is contained within the Law Library on floor 3. All Law books, journals and law reports are found at shelf marks beginning with K. Other useful shelf marks are given here. The floor information is for books; print journals will have the same shelfmark but all journals are on the third floor.
