Introduction

This subject guide will help you to locate the resources you will find particularly useful when commencing your studies in this area. Here is the best place to find books, information about databases and a guide to the appropriate websites.

Referencing advice: The TASC  and your teachers at St Patrick's College expect you to present all your work with citations and references in the Harvard (author/date) format. Go to the Library's Referencing Guidelines for extended help in this important area. The Library staff are always happy to help you with any queries you may have in regard to referencing requirements for any research you are undertaking.

Independent studies (IPs): When undertaking an independent study, research or book reviews you must allow yourself enough time to search for and locate the material you need. To help you a booking sheet is kept at the Library desk where you may book individual time with one of the Library staff when commencing any research for Legal Studies.

Faculty Resources: All material purchased by the SOSE Faculty for this subject is also available for student use if it is not required by the teachers. These resources are kept in the Library and can be found by using the library catalogue.
