The Complete Law Portal
Lawbore™ is made for undergraduates like you!
If you've just come from a lecture and your head is spinning, let us help you back onto steady ground. Lawbore is City University's law portal and our pages are jam-packed with useful content to get you deep into your subject. Here's what each sub-site does:
1) The Link Directory: your topic-by-topic Web guide
Our law librarian Emily has hand-picked the choicest links to key websites, blogs and documents, so you can hit the ground learning. With over 1100 entries split across no less than 38 legal topics, our guides are the perfect place to begin researching an assignment. Every link has a sub-category, a description, a screenshot and a popularity statistic, so you'll be able to tell instantly if it might be useful to you.
2) Learnmore: for multimedia law skills tutorials
Don't worry - our Learnmore head doesn't feel any cold with his brain exposed like that! Inside it you'll find talking slideshows, articles, video guides and interactive presentations written and composed by knowledgable lecturers, librarians and alumni. Because studying law is a scary place when you start out, we designed Learnmore specifically for newbies and crammed it full of ideas on getting the most out of lectures, moots, exams and the law library.
3) Future Lawyer: our careers and alumni blog
We can't predict the future, but we know one thing for sure: if you're going to become a lawyer you'll need to keep up-to-date with the hottest issues in the legal profession. That's why Emily started the Future Lawyer blog. Featuring articles and opinion from across the legal sphere as well as interviews with successful course alumni and sections for future barristers and solicitors alike, it's an ideal entry point to the greater world of law careers.
4) The City Hub: news and databases for our own students
Don't be jealous if you're not studying here, but the City Hub is all for our own students at the City Law School in London! The City Hub is where we collect all the school news, events, useful links, databases, e-journals and the like. Plus it's got your book needs covered with a board for trading textbooks and a visual carousel of our law library's latest acquisitions. Oh and don't forget to follow Emily's Twitter feed for her run down of recent news, articles and off-the-cuff randomness!
