Hi everyone. For those of you that I have not yet met, my name is Nazli Tunay and I am your LexisNexis Student Rep for 2014/15.

I would first like to highlight that, LexisNexis is an invaluable legal database that you have access to whilst here at City University. I could confidently say this, and here are a few points that form my reasoning:

· LexisNexis is one of the world's largest information businesses serving four million customers in 100 countries.

· LexisLibrary used by 90% of the top 200 law firms, all of the Inns of Court and over 4,000 organisations in the UK. It is used by Parliament, all UK judges and all UK universities with a qualifying law degree.

· LexisLibrary is noted by the Court of Appeal as being the most up to date legal databases as was cited in R v Blackwood

· LexisLibrary is the home of Halsbury's Laws, the complete narrative statement of the law in England and Wales as written by commissioned leading experts.

· Halsbury's Laws answers a question every 4 seconds, has been cited more than 1,700 times in judgments or submissions as published in the Law Reports of England and Wales from the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting over the last 100 years.

My role as a Student Rep is to assist you with any questions that you have about LexisNexis, whether that be how to find a case, how to use the advanced features or even just getting started.

I will have drop-in clinics whereby you can come and see me in person and we can run through these things one to one or alternatively you can email me or arrange a more convenient time if the drop-in clinic times are not convenient for you.

You can do so by emailing me or contacting me through the Facebook page.

The drop-in clinics will be starting this week (w/c 13th October 2014) and these dates and times will apply to every week from now on:

· Mondays - 12-1pm

· Tuesdays - 3-4pm

The Room is yet to be confirmed, so for this week only, please email me if you would like to see me during these times and I will respond with an area to meet and discuss what you need help in.

Additionally, I will be arranging a LexisNexis Basic and Advanced certification sessions throughout the year. Last year many students attended these sessions, as they will look fantastic on your CV.

Thank you for reading this so far and if there is anything at all you need regarding LexisNexis please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks,

Nazli Tunay

If you missed it on Jan 30th you can still read it online...

We've just taken on 1000's of ebooks on a trial basis - basically if you use them...we will buy them!

Many of these are available on the library website but some are not. Taylor & Francis and Routledge books need to be accessed via their own website - just login and browse content by Law. You can then look at books via subject area (e.g. Contract Law & Tort, Islamic Law etc).

If you need help, there's a helpful guide available.

A critical analysis of the collateral evidence rule

The Critical Corporation Project presents a star-studded panel to highlight and debate all sides of the 'Sustainable Fashion' question. Sustainable fashion has emerged over the past years, and after several 'fashion faux pas' such as the Rana Plaza disaster, as an alternative to 'fast fashion'. Can Sustainable fashion deliver a more equitable deal for garment workers, a reduction in toxic waste, and an end to the exploitation of cotton farmers, or will the demand for a 'new black' every season, with the profit opportunity that this provides, win out?

Adam Elman, Global Head of Delivery for Plan A - who aims to make Marks & Spencer the most sustainable retailer in the world, will discuss this topic with Tansy Hoskins, author of Stitched Up: The Anti-Capitalist Book of Fashion, Leah Borromeo, director of Dirty White Gold, a film about Indian cotton farmers, and Alex McIntosh Business manager of the London School of Fashion's Centre for Sustainable Fashion.

The event will include a screening of the (15 min) promo for Dirty White Gold.

Copies of Tansy Hoskin's book Stitched Up: The Anti-Capitalist Book of Fashion will be available for purchase.

The Conservative Party has announced its intention to repeal the Human Rights Act 1998 and replace it with a British Bill of Rights, if returned to power after the election. The proposal is popular, but has been criticised by opponents across the political divide.

She will examine the part played by the European Convention on Human Rights and the Human Rights Act in the English constitution. Do we need them at all? Or are the common law and the Supreme Court a better source of protection for our civil liberties? In the delicate constitutional relationship between judges, parliament and the government, have we got the balance right? If not, how should it be changed?
