  • You have been supplied with an access code (a multiple digit number) by your institution, or in your textbook. Please see Access Code for information on how to redeem your code.
Tip: Ensure you enter your login details in to the sign in box, and not the personal profile box to the top right of the screen

With username and password

If you have individual access to Law Trove, type your username and password in the login fields at the top of the left-hand panel.

From your institution

Your university has bought institutional access to Law Trove. Access will vary depending on your institution. When you are onsite you simply need to be logged into your university network then navigate to Law Trove. If you are offsite or navigating to www.oxfordlawtrove.com you will need to login via Athens/Access Management Federation, select your university and login.

If you do experience difficulties with automatic access, please consult your system administrator or librarian.

Your password is case sensitive. If you forget your username or password, click on the 'forgotten your password' link under the sign in box and you'll receive an automated reminder. It will be sent to the email address you first used to register. If you are still experiencing problems, email accesstokens@oup.com


If you only want the content you can access to be displayed, click on Unlock the titles in your subscription in the left hand panel on the Law Trove homepage. If running a search, select the green unlocked padlock if you only want to see the titles you have access to.
