 Welcome to the subject guide for Law. This guide is designed     to direct  you to the essential resources for your subject .  It has been compiled by your Subject Librarian.

The guide has been divided into different sections such as books,  Legal Databases and journal articles and other legal resources. When selected, each of the tabs on your left expands to give you a further menu with more specific options such as 'journals for law' and 'UK Legislation and Cases'

This guide covers the core resources you need for day-to-day study and research.  However, you may sometimes find other subject guides useful for specialised topics. For more information about library services , see the Library Help  pages on the Library Gateway

Please check the latest Sheffield Hallam University Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice for staff and students. 


The health and safety of students and staff is our top priority. In line with national public health guidance regarding COVID-19, and to protect you and help stop the spread of coronavirus,  Adsetts and Collegiate libraries are open but you must plan and book to borrow or return books, and before coming to study in the libraries. 

Please check our dedicated online guide for more information and to find out how to make the most of your library off-campus.

What to do if a book is not available in the Library

If there's a book which you need but which we don't have in stock, we can ask another library to loan you a copy, or to email you a copy of an individual  chapter or section. This can be done through our document supply service.

If you think a book may be useful for other students or staff as well as yourself, you can also request that the Library buys a copy. We can't promise to buy everything, but will do what we can for feasible requests which are relevant to courses at Sheffield Hallam.

What to do if a journal article is not available in the Library

If we don't have a journal article or conference proceeding in stock, we can ask another library to email a copy to you via our Document Supply Service. While it may not be possible to get absolutely everything, the vast majority of articles can be obtained this way.
