Free Legal Resources

To assist legal practitioners Library staff have developed two complementary free online services.


A gateway site, providing annotated links to selected free UK, Commonwealth and worldwide legal resources including case law, legislation, commentary and organisations. Entries are arranged in five sections: United Kingdom, Commonwealth, Other Jurisdictions, Legal Subject Areas and General Resources.

Current Awareness Blog

A selective Current Awareness blog, updated daily, providing information on new case law, changes in legislation, and legal news, as well as articles, case comments and conference papers from chambers’ websites and selected lectures and events.  There is also a Classifieds section, where chambers can advertise their services for free.  The blog is intended primarily for lawyers practising in the UK. Coverage is restricted to England and Wales.
