Database Support Materials


i-law is THE database for those interested in maritime and commercial law. At City we subscribe to the Maritime and Insurance & Reinsurance modules.

Prime resources include Lloyds Law Reports and the Lloyds Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly.

This database requires an individual username and password - ask your library for this.

Need extra help? Check out the guide and videos.


Lexis is an immense database with access to cases, legislation and journal articles. Practitioner texts are also available, including Blackstones Criminal Practice, Lester & Pannick: Human Rights Law and Practice, Paget's Law of Banking, Whish: Competition Law amongst 149 others.

You can also access really monster Lexis publications - Halsbury's Laws (the legal encyclopedia) and Halsbury's Statutes amongst them.

Law report-wise you can find many key series in LNB: All England Law Reports (All ER), The Law Reports (AC, QB, Ch etc), Times Law Reports (TLR) amongst others.

Access using your IT username and password.

Need extra help? Kristina Voronenko is your LexisNexis Student Associate and can provide online research support to students and staff.


Westlaw is a huge database containing cases, legislation and journal articles. Searching for cases within Westlaw is a joy, particularly thanks to the Case Analysis function. This cool tool almost does your research for you, listing lots of extra stuff about a case; its history, where its been cited subsequently and, best of all, all the journal articles which talk about your case.

Law report series included in Westlaw include the Weekly Law Reports (WLR), The Law Reports (AC, QB, Ch etc), Fleet Street Reports (FSR), Common Market Law Reports (CMLR) and Housing Law Reports amongst others.

The journal collection is admirable; including the Conveyancer (Conv), Criminal Law Review (Crim L.R.), European Law Review (E.L.Rev), Law Quarterly Review (LQR), Oxford Journal of Legal Studies (OJLS) and Public Law (P.L.) as well as loads more...


HeinOnline is an American database which offers access to a huge number of journals. Unlike Lexis or Westlaw it generally offers full coverage of journal titles, ie. from volume 1, issue 1.

It offers a wide selection of American Journals with extensive coverage, eg. Harvard Law Review (1887-), Yale Law Journal (1891-).

Its collection of English journals is growing and key ones to remember are as follows: Cambridge Law Journal (1921-), Industrial Law Journal (1972-1997), International and Comparative Law Quarterly (1952-), Law Quarterly Review (1885-), Legal Studies (1981-)

Access using your IT username and password.

There's a Hein App now too -

All databases require a City Law School student account for access. If you have trouble using a database, please email the Law Library or use the helpdesk form.
