When a student begins studying law at university, they will be greeted with a plethora of new and unfamiliar sources that they will need to discover and explore. Part of the learning journey is navigating the way to the right resources and using them to guide to greater understanding. Finding relevant and appropriate legal resources can be one of the biggest challenges the student may face when arriving at university.

It also considers resources in the wider context of the changing nature of legal study, the increasing use of technology, and the accessibility of sources.
