On 1st August 2013 the School of Law at UCLan Cyprus started subscribing to three new legal databases:
(i) Kluwer Online: one of the most prestigious legal databases in the world from one of the most prestigious law publishing houses, including such central journals for legal scholarship as the Common Market Law Review, European Public Law and the Journal of World Trade.
(ii) Kluwer Arbitration: the world’s leading online resource for international arbitration research.
(iii) Recueil des cours en ligne: (in both English and French) the collected courses of the Hague Academy of International Law, currently covering more than 330 volumes (150,000 pages) containing over 1200 lectures given over a period of 85 years; thus, representing one of the most important collections charting the ongoing development of public and private international law.
Dr Tim Potier, Head of the Law School at UCLan Cyprus, welcomed these additions to the currently extensive resources already available to staff and students at the University. He said: “I am delighted by our University’s commitment to establishing a regional centre for legal academic research at UCLan Cyprus. Universities around the world are facing substantial cutbacks in their budgets. UCLan Cyprus, however, is ‘bucking this trend’ by further extending its already excellent portfolio of resources. Such investment will certainly contribute to the Law School and UCLan Cyprus more generally establishing its place as a first choice for Cypriots and overseas students, and as an institution for the intellectual elite”.
