There are issues accessing Westlaw UK off-campus and/or via Library Search. This is beyond Newcastle University's control at the present time and will be resolved with the next release of software from Sweet & Maxwell (the database providers).

How to access Westlaw UK when off-campus, until further notice:

  1. Access Westlaw UK directly: http://legalresearch.westlaw.co.uk/
  2. Click on LOG IN TO YOUR SERVICE and Academic: Organisation Name on the homepage
  3. Search for Newcastle University or use the alphabetical drop-down menu to locate our institution and click on Newcastle University
  4. Click Continue
  5. Enter your Newcastle University campus ID and password
