Plagiarism

Turnitin is the leading plagiarism prevention service. Law Trove is Turnitin compatible.

Self-testing and checking progress

Students can test their understanding of a subject by accessing multiple-choice questions with instant feedback. It’s not assessed and is done in private, but they can then tell you where they are struggling. Look in the related links box at the end of each book or chapter and refer your students to it.

Engaging with case law through Essential Cases

Exclusive to Law Trove, this resource has been welcomed by academics. Essential Cases provide succinct summaries of some of the landmark and most influential cases in the core subject areas. Each summary begins with a review of the main case facts and decision and is concluded with author commentary including their assessment of the wider questions raised by the decision. Each case is linked to the full case judgment.

Wider reading

Where further reading is listed there is an option to find the resource “in your library”. Metadata about the bibliographic reference is passed to the catalogue via an OpenURL resolver, and the relevant results from the library are shown (e.g. print/online, and whether available to borrow or out on loan).

Your librarian may need to change the URL preferences to activate this feature.
