Finding legal articles

Legal research cannot be done by relying on the "Articles & more" tab on SOLO,  and/or Google Scholar.

There are special tools - make use of them!

If you are current Oxford University member and find useful articles in journals to which the Bodleian does not have a subscription consider an Inter-Library Loan

African legal journals

Journals in print

Journal issues from 2000 onwards are on Floor 1; pre 2000 issues are on the Ground Floor.
Country specific law journals will have shelf marks starting eg Nigeria 300. Comparative law journals have shelf marks beginning General 300.

Please ask a member of staff for directions when you visit the Law Bod.

Electronic journals

Law Firm Newsletters etc

There are too many for any list to be comprehensive (below are a couple known to - and gratefully used by - us). If you are studying a particular legal topic, or a foreign jurisdiction, it may well be worth considering which law firms have gained a distinguished reputation in the same topic/jurisdiction, they may well have partners/practitioners posting news and comment.
