Our industry-leading legal research tools provide easy access to a vast library of case law, legislation, journals and books; and our how-to service contains thousands of practice notes and guides to help students get up to speed in all areas of the law.
Hosting a roadshow at your institution is a great way to see the extensive range of trusted legal titles published by Sweet & Maxwell. Learn about forthcoming titles, and take away inspection copies for consideration as course textbooks. It’s a great opportunity to meet Sweet & Maxwell’s academic team and to let us know if you’ve identified any gaps in the market.

Selected students can get titles published by Sweet & Maxwell to the value of £150 (or £100 for LPC/BPTC courses). The prize is open to all law schools in the UK.
