As reported in the Guardian Newspaper (6 May 2015), The Supreme Court is to make available  – until March 2016 at least – recordings of individual cases for temporary download.

“The video-on-demand service is intended to make an archive of cases available for up to a year. It will cover not only supreme court hearings but also those in the judicial committee of the privy council (JCPC), which sits in the same Westminster building and hears appeals from some Commonwealth countries, British overseas territories and crown dependencies.”

Recordings will be available via the Catch-up Service https://www.supremecourt.uk/news/catch-up-on-court-action-supreme-court-launches-video-on-demand-service.html

To help maintain a quiet environment during revision and exams, entry to Magee Library will be restricted from Tuesday 5th May – 22 May 2015. You will need your ID card to swipe the sensor on  the revolving door or on the sensor on the wall in order to gain entry. If you can’t find your ID card, you need to get a replacement  from Academic Registry. Ask at the Issue Desk first, as ID cards are sometimes handed in to Lost Property. If your ID card doesn’t work, you can get it reset at the Security Desk in Block MD (main building). Other registered library users, e.g. Step Up, Alumni or Sconul card holders should bring their Library card with them, press the buzzer above the swipe-card sensor on the wall and they will be let in by staff. Other members of the public with genuine research queries may also ask for entry at the front door. We regret that students from secondary or grammar schools are not permitted entry during this restricted period, unless they hold Step Up cards. We would ask for everyone’s co-operation to maintain a quiet building during the revision period. Please let staff know immediately if you are being disturbed by others’ inconsiderate behaviour.

Looking for articles on landlord and tenant law in relation to Northern Ireland?

Search Westlaw Journals for ‘tenant’ and add ‘Northern Ireland’ to the subject / keyword field. Sort your results by relevance and use the filters on the left hand side to limit to Land, and then Landlord and tenant topic.

Northern Ireland Legal Quarterly  results are full-text in HeinOnline (up to 2011) and up to date in hardcopy on the Journal shelves in the Library (check the library catalogue for the shelf number).

Any references in Westlaw to Northern Ireland Conveyancing and Land Law Journal is actually to a journal called Folio and it’s also on the journal shelves in the Library.

Having problems finding Wylie Irish land Law on Lexis?

Log in to Lexis Library and click on the Commentary section at the top of the page. Then choose the Browse option and scroll down through the full list of sources and find Irish Land Law. You can now use the search option to search through the whole text (or a section of the text). Alternatively, click on the various + icons to open each section bit by bit and read it like the print book. (The print version is also available on Short Loan).

WARNING:  Unlike the previous 3rd edition, the 4th edition does not explicitly cover Northern Ireland law, so please use  with care.  Print copies of the Wylie Irish land Law 3rd edition are available in both Jordanstown and Magee libraries.

Having trouble finding Deasy’s Act?

The full title of Deasy’s Act is the Landlord and Tenant Law Amendment (Ireland) Act 1860.  Because Deasy’s Act has been repealed in England and Wales you won’t find the Act in either LexisLibrary or Westlaw.

Instead use Justis (another library database), as it provides access to legislation as originally enacted.

Search tip! Search for Landlord and Tenant law in the Legislation search box and  add 1860 into the date box but DON’T click on the Repealed button.

You’ll be able to get hold of the pdf of the complete act or the whole act, section by section.

Planned refurbishment works at Magee Library will commence on 17/1/15 with completion by 20/2/15.  Specifically, internal glazing across the 1st and 2nd floor at the entrance is being replaced. 

 As a result of the works, the front entrance and disabled parking bays to this block will be closed to all staff, students and the public through-out this period.  Access in and out of the library will be via the rear entrance and directional signage will be erected on site to indicate this temporary arrangement. 

Library resources and study spaces will continue to be available.  However, there will be no access to the electronic classroom during the refurbishment works.
