Purpose of this guide

This guide is intended for students and researchers studying company (corporation or corporate) law at the University of Oxford, although students and researchers from any field may find it useful.

Companies & finance: quick start

Are you looking for a Reading List title?

If yes does the SOLO search result indicate that it is the location called the Law Reserve? If SOLO says the book is in the Law Reserve, please come to the Law Library's Enquiry Desk on Level 2 with your University or Bodleian Reader's Card and ask for it there.  It will be wanded out to you but must still be read in the Law Library. Please return the book to the Enquiry Desk when you have finished with it.
Note.  The books in the Reserve Collection are available to all categories of readers (not just those on the particular course).

Encyclopedic approach

 To learn the current state of English law on any particular subject from print sources, there is

            Halsbury’s Laws of England shelved on Level 2 (the entrance level to the Law Library) at the shelf mark KZ 1.  Halsbury's is an encyclopedic treatment of English & Welsh laws: the natural first point of reference for the busy practitioner requiring cold start research on an area or a reliable recap with pointers to essential legislation and leading cases.  You will find corporate law & finances is spread across more than one main volume of Halsbury - and you must also use the service volumes which keep track of legal developments since the publication of the main volumes. 
Holders of an Oxford Single Sign On are reminded that LexisLibrary includes all the Halsbury services

Please visit the Books page in this guide for more detailed guidance around the Law Library and its book collection.

The Sainsbury Library at the Said Business School is the key provider for many of these.
