Potential causes of problems logging in to Westlaw

If you link to Westlaw via the Library website when on campus, the link takes you straight into Westlaw. If you are off campus, the link will take you to the standard Manchester Metropolitan University Sign in page first. 

Some users may be asked to add name and email address after logging in the first time they use the service. Off campus users may also be required to select Log in with academic institution (even if presented with an error message - Westlaw is working on this).

Any problems with this database should be referred to the library staff, email 

If they are unavailable and you continue to have problems accessing Westlaw, please use this freephone number to contact the Westlaw helpdesk team directly: 0800 028 2200. They should be able to resolve your problem.
