If you are studying law at Salford then you may have a few questions about how to go about finding legal information resources for your studies, assignments or dissertation.

I look at answering some of them in this blog post, if your query isn’t covered here please get in touch with me at n.sales@salford.ac.uk.

There are four main types of information resources that you will need to consult during your programme. These are:

  • Books or eBooks
  • Legal case materials
  • Legislation (such as Acts of Parliament)
  • Legal Journal articles

Legal journal article examples
