New Law Library Database Subscription: Justis

Posted by Library Blog on 01/19/2010 at 12:00 AM

The Law Library subscribes to the Justis database to offer its patrons full-text access to all United Kingdom legislation in force or repealed from 1235 to the present.  Full-text statutory instruments are also searchable in Justis.  Statutory instruments set out detailed provisions under the authority of the enabling Acts of Parliament.  Coverage of the statutory instruments is from 1671 to present. These documents are available as pdf files.

In addition, searchable articles in the Justis database contain press releases and announcements from most of the major government departments in England and Scotland.  Coverage begins 1998. 

For off-campus access to Justis, click on its link from the WebCatalog or the law library’s web pages and type your name and the barcode located on the back of your School of Law ID at the login prompt.  Click on the “continue to Justis” button from the “sign on” dialog box.  You do not need to enter a user ID, password, or client code.

Contact a Reference Librarian if you need assistance with using Justis.
