Additional costs and optional extras related to undergraduate law courses

The core textbooks for all law modules and the main law reference materials are available in the dedicated Faculty Law Library. DMU subscribes to the services of Westlaw UK, LexisLibrary and Family Law Online which provide online access to all essential course materials such as cases, legislation, legal commentary and selected journals. Some students like to purchase their own copies of textbooks or other published materials. We suggest allowing up to £200 per year if you wish to purchase new textbooks, less for second hand copies.
