29 April 2010A new free online legal resource for students and academics
From today via Law Campus, a new web resource from LexisNexis, a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions, law students and academics will be able to access a wealth of information, support and expertise to assist with both legal studies and research, absolutely free.
This new, online legal resource and community combines unique content including video tutorials, blogs, and interactive video teaching materials to support academic study and legal research training.
Tom Laidlaw, Head of Academic Development, LexisNexis said; “LawCampus has been designed as an easy way for both students and academics to keep abreast of the latest developments in the law – and share information and ideas. Instant online access to the LexisNexis academic training team, as well as brand new training videos for our acclaimed LexisLibrary service, will help both students and academics get the most out of the LexisNexis research tools their universities subscribe to. For students, it will also enable them to start to align their working practices to those of real world lawyers encouraging them to seek out information, ask the advice of peers and specialists, and effectively self-educate; and so develop skills that are of paramount importance to the modern lawyer.”
Key benefits of LawCampus include:
- Easy access to unique content, including interviews with Lord Denning commented on by leading academics
- Instant online access to the LexisNexis academic training team, through email and MSN, and brand-new training videos for the acclaimed LexisLibrary service
