a1 Emily Allbon has been Law Librarian at City University since August 2000. Prior to this, she completed her trainee year at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, continuing to work there whilst completing her M.Sc. at City.
Lawbore is a subject-orientated gateway to legal resources developed at City University, which has been created as a community site for the law department. Lawbore's features include regular polls, articles written by City staff and students, legal news and useful legal quotes. It aims to attract students with its time based structure, snappy resource descriptions, direct links into articles within databases, interactive qualities, relevance to module content and easy navigation. Although launched at the end of April, it is expected that usage will be low-key at a time when most students are frantically revising. The real test will not come until the new academic year.
