Some Newcastle Law School modules have two Reading Lists attached to the module. They serve two purposes:

  • One list will give information on your Approved Source Material (items required for use in your examination) and essential books you may need to buy to study the module effectively.
  • The second list will give information on your essential, recommended and background reading for your module. This can list books, eBooks, journals and journal articles which are to be read for your module.

In order to ensure your legal research skills develop during your studies, all legislation and case law is excluded from these lists; you will be directed to read these materials through your lecture and seminar handouts and will be expected to locate them yourself, either in the Law Library or through one of our databases. The Law Subject Guide offers information and access to these resources.

The Copyright Licensing Agency will allow us to provide access to book chapter scans and other digitised materials not available elsewhere through the Reading Lists service and nowhere else. You will also find these materials listed.

A brief overview of how to access your reading lists is available in the short video (no audio, 49 secs) attached to this FAQ.
