A research guide to legal sources in the UK.


This LibGuide is an orientation to the primary law of the United Kingdom. It also covers secondary sources and has a brief section on legislative history. It focuses on resources that are accessible in the Library, and available through commercial legal research databases that we provide for our students and faculty. Where particularly useful, we also include free online resources.
