Access Code

Redeeming your access code

One way of gaining access to Law Trove is through an access code or token which contains a multiple digit number.

Law Trove logoIf you have purchased a vocational law book (a Legal Practice Course manual, or selected title in our A Practical Approach series) and it features the Law Trove icon on the back cover, you'll be able to access the book digitally. You'll find the 16 digit access code printed on the inside back cover.

By activating your code (whether you have been given the book by your institution, or obtained it from a book you've purchased yourself) you indicate that you accept our terms and conditions.

Get started

  1. Have your access code to hand and click here
  2. Enter your code and activate your account
  3. Fill in your details and choose a password to create your account

Your account will be activated immediately and you can begin discovering.

You will not need your activation code once your account has been set up. On subsequent log-ins you will just need your username and password.

Your access code can only be redeemed once and is not transferable.

You must activate your access code before 30 June 2020. Access will last for 12 months from activation.  

You’ll be directed to the Law Trove homepage, choose to “show titles in my subscription” or select the open padlock icon to reveal just the content you have access to. The content your code entitles you to will remain the same for your 12 month access period.

If you don't have an access code but would like to buy 12 months access to Law Trove, please visit the Purchasing a Collection page for details on how to do this.

When can I access my vocational title on Law Trove?

My access code doesn’t work. What do I do?
Access codes are redeemable once and are not transferable; they also have an expiry date. For that reason it’s highly unlikely that you’ll be able to redeem a code printed on a second-hand title or an old edition.

Access to your title(s) on Law Trove is valid for 12 months from redemption; your subscription may have expired.

If you’ve entered your code correctly, and it doesn’t work, please email accesstokens@oup.com. It would help us if you include the name of your institution, how you were given your code, and the access number in your email.

I’ve set up my access but my login doesn’t work.

I've had my access code for a while but haven't redeemed it yet, is there a time limit?
Yes, you must activate your code before 30 June 2020, after that it will expire. For that reason it’s highly unlikely that you’ll be able to redeem a code printed on a second-hand title or an old edition.

If you are still experiencing login problems please email onlinepersonalsubs@oup.com, with as much information as possible.
