The Taylor Library book-sale is currently on and will continue until Friday 6th October. There’s still plenty of interesting titles available so if you haven’t had a look yet, make sure you do before next Friday!
With the first classes of term just around the corner, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind users of the food and drink policy.
Food is permitted in certain areas of Taylor Library, provided it is not hot, overly fragrant or noisy. So for example sandwiches, salads and last night’s pizza are fine. Soup, curry, crisps and popping candy are not. Drinks (excluding alcohol) are permitted under the condition that hot drinks be covered with a fixed lid. In addition, while drinks are permitted throughout the library under the aforementioned conditions…
food is NOT allowed in:
- the PC classroom, or at any PC
- project rooms 1 and 2
- the silent areas in D block
Just ask a member of staff if you are unsure of anything. It is our aim to provide a harmonious study environment for all library users at all times. Please help us to do so.

Failure to flourish: how law undermines family relationships
Oxford : Oxford University Press, c2014
“Exploring the connection between families and inequality, Failure to Flourish: How Law Undermines Family Relationships argues that the legal regulation of families stands fundamentally at odds with the needs of families. Strong, stable, positive relationships are essential for both individuals and society to flourish, but from transportation policy to the criminal justice system, and from divorce rules to the child welfare system, the legal system makes it harder for parents to provide children with these kinds of relationships, exacerbating the growing inequality in America” (OUP)
Tallinn manual 2.0 on the international law applicable to cyber operations
Michael N. Schmitt (ed)
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2017
“The focus of the original Manual was on the most severe cyber operations, those that violate the prohibition of the use of force in international relations, entitle states to exercise the right of self-defence, and/or occur during armed conflict. Tallinn Manual 2.0 adds a legal analysis of the more common cyber incidents that states encounter on a day-to-day basis and that fall below the thresholds of the use of force or armed conflict.
The expanded edition of the Tallinn Manual, like its predecessor, represents the views of its authors, and not of NATO, the NATO CCD COE, its Sponsoring Nations, or any other entity. ” (CCDCOE)
The UK and European human rights: a strained relationship?
Katja S. Ziegler (ed)
Oxford : Hart Pub., 2015
“The UK’s engagement with the legal protection of human rights at a European level has been, at varying stages, pioneering, sceptical and antagonistic. The UK government, media and public opinion have all at times expressed concerns about the growing influence of European human rights law, particularly in the controversial contexts of prisoner voting and deportation of suspected terrorists as well as in the context of British military action abroad. British politicians and judges have also, however, played important roles in drafting, implementing and interpreting the European Convention on Human Rights. Its incorporation into domestic law in the Human Rights Act 1998 intensified the ongoing debate about the UK’s international and regional human rights commitments. Furthermore, the increasing importance of the European Union in the human rights sphere has added another layer to the relationship and highlights the complex relationship(s) between the UK government, the Westminster Parliament and judges in the UK, Strasbourg and Luxembourg.
The book analyses the topical and contentious issue of the relationship between the UK and the European systems for the protection of human rights (ECHR and EU) from doctrinal, contextual and comparative perspectives and explores factors that influence the relationship of the UK and European human rights.” (Hart Pub)

- INTERPRETING CASE CITATIONS
What does case citation mean?
Case citation is a system of referencing by which legal professionals can identify a legal case heard and decided by one of the courts in the UK.
A full case citation starts with the Case name in italics followed by the neutral citation (where available) and/or the reference for law report series where the case was published. The citation tells you where to find the case (in paper or online) if you need it.
For cases from Scottish and English courts, the citation usually has 3 distinct parts:
- abbreviation (for the law report series in which the case was published)
- page number.
You may see more than one citation following the party names. These are parallel citations, and refer you to the case in different law report series. You do not need to find all the law reports which published the case to read it. You should use the most authoritative citation which is the first one right after the party names. Parallel citations offer an opportunity to find a case in different law reports if the library does not have the most authoritative source.
Neutral citations (case identifiers)
The neutral citations were introduced in the UK in 2001, and in Scotland in 2005. This system means that decisions of the superior courts in both Scotland and England are issued with unique judgement numbers. So, the last number after the abbreviation is not a page number but the identifier of the case.
ANATOMY OF A CASE CITATION
*Law reports are usually cited by abbreviation rather than the full title. Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations can help you understand the meaning of abbreviations for the titles of English language legal publications.
2. TRACKING DOWN CASES ON PAPER AND ONLINE
Law reports are available on paper in Block C and Block D of the Taylor Library. They are shelved by title in alphabetical order running down the right hand side of the lower level of the Library. The current parts of law reports are on the display stand near the entrance. All law reports are for reference use only.
For electronic versions of the law reports you have to consult the legal databases (Westlaw, Lexis Library, HeinOnline). Alternatively, you might want to check Primo, our resource discovery tool, for individual law report titles. (Do a ‘title search’ instead of a search by citation.) Please note that not all years are available for all law reports.
For more information on accessing and using legal databases, please read our library guides.
