We’ve just renewed our subscriptions to Family Law and Oxford Scholarship Online – Law.
You may have heard Family Law referred to as ‘Jordan’s Family Law’ as it was first introduced by Jordan Publishing in the 1980s, but was acquired by LexisNexis in 2016.
Family Law includes flagship titles including: The Family Court Practice (Red Book); the journal – Family Law plus the Family Law Reports which provide the most authoritative source of case reports.
To access The Family Court Practice (Red Book), go to My Bookshelf on the right side of the LexisNexis screen and you will see it listed there. You can either browse chapter by chapter, or search by entering your search terms.
For further guidance see the LJMU LexisNexis user guide, or click on the “User Guide Available” in Discover’s Public Notes or the purple ‘view user guide’ icon next to the resource’s name on Databases A-Z.
Oxford Scholarship Online (OSO) for Law is a vast library of over 1,700 academic books.
You can find titles by either browsing by subject or performing a search, and then narrowing your results by recently published, publication year, etc. Books can be read online, or downloaded as a PDF for when you’re offline.
Find the link from Databases A-Z, then ‘Sign In Via Your Institution’ on the menu on the left of the screen.
