Library Search is an excellent discovery tool but not all legal journal articles are indexed and available using this resource.

We recommend you search for the JOURNAL the article is published in; you will then be able to see the availability of the journal (both in hard copy and electronically) and where you can locate your article.

For example:

Richard Mullender, 'Negligence, Public Bodies and Ruthlessness' (2009) 71 MLR 961

You need to locate an article published in the MLR.

What does MLR stand for? Use the Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations to find out the full title of the journal.

Search for the 'Modern Law Review' on Library Search.

The results will show the electronic availability of the journal via the View Online tab. If you prefer to use the hard copy or print version, the Locations/Request tab will tell you which library the journal is shelved in.
