Practical Law is an online legal ‘know how’ service. It provides resources, such as practice notes, current awareness and standard documents to help with legal practice and providing legal advice.
Resources are created and kept up to date by a team of editors who have experience gained in law firms, companies and public sector organisations.
It is integrated with resources on the Westlaw UK service.
Users should sign in to Westlaw using University credentials, however first-time users must also register on the Westlaw site. Please follow our Westlaw Registration Instructions. Users who have not accessed the service in over 15 months will need to re-register.
