This event is cancelled. Please contact Jackie Hanes from the Library if you would like training on LexisLibrary.

LexisLibrary is a one of the key legal research databases – used in both academic and professional practice.  It includes full-text legislation, law reports, and commentary from journals and encyclopaedias.  This is a 1 hour practical workshop which gives participants an opportunity to take the LexisLibrary user certification test, in a supported learning environment, and receive a LexisLibrary Research Certificate.

Participants are required to answer 15 multiple choice question in one hour.  The pass mark is 85%, and successful completion is rewarded with a LexisLibrary Research Certificate, which can be used on CVs as evidence of legal research skills.

Who is this workshop for?

Primarily undergraduate law students, but also relevant to postgraduate law students and researchers, who are not otherwise familiar with the LexisLibrary database.

What will it cover?

There will be a brief demonstration of LexisLibrary, with an opportunity to ask questions; but the majority of the session will be spent taking the user certification test.  You are expected to complete online database training before the workshop (see below).  The test will assess your ability to use LexisLibrary: to find definitions and commentary of the law on a subject, to find cases and legislation by name and citation, and to analyse the status of cases and legislation.

Do I need to do anything to prepare?
