The Research Revolution starts here

Books online. Like you've never seen them before.

Our revolutionary new online books platform will change the way you consume legal commentary. Designed with customers and built for the legal market, the new platform brings the books to life with an array of time-saving, efficiency-increasing features. And the integration with Practical Law and Westlaw UK legal content, means you get a fully rounded research experience.


Key features and functionality

Enhanced index

The intuitive index functionality allows you to browse and search all indexes, making it easier for you to find the content you need.

Helpful navigation tools

The improved table of contents makes it easier than ever to browse and navigate to parts of the title. The introduction of persistent document headers means you’ll never forget where you are when reading a title.

Improved delivery options

Our new delivery options allow you to email, print, download and add content to a folder for later use.

Intuitive publication pages

The new publication landing pages allow you to view a title’s table of contents as a single page or to quickly access key references and related resources.

Personalisation features

Use the personalisation features to favourite titles for easy access, highlight text of high importance, or add your own notes.

Seamless interaction with legal know-how resources

Seamlessly move from your Practical Law legal know-how resources to your commentary titles, without logging in twice.

Expand your research with links to cases and legislation

Access direct links within titles to cases and legislation on Westlaw UK to enhance and broaden your research.

Search and Browse

Browse and search the full list of available titles or use the filters to narrow your search by topic, jurisdiction, publisher, in/out of subscription or your favourite titles.

Continuous reading

Read consecutive pages of the book on a single web page using 'reading mode'. You just keep scrolling and the paragraphs will keep loading. It makes for a smoother, quicker read.

Training and support resources

Useful training videos, webinar registration, technical details and support information that will help you make the most out of a complete library of Westlaw UK Books. Keep checking back in as we'll be adding to this page all the time.
