Q. How can I access Practical Law?


Follow the link from our Database A-Z page:


This should take you to the PLC homepage.

Look to the top right hand corner where you will see a ‘Sign in’ link.

This will bring up the OnePass sign in menu.

Look to the bottom of the menu where you will see an option to Log in with OpenAthens, click on this.

This will take you through to the OpenAthens sign in page.

Look to the right hand menu labeled ‘Find your Organisation’ and type ‘City’ into the box. It doesn't come up on the first list so you will need to click on 'show more results':

Select ‘City, University of London’ when it appears in the drop down menu and then press enter. This will take you through to another sign in page where you can enter your City username and password (the same one you use to log in to Moodle).

Once you have logged in you should be taken back to the PLC homepage, you will now be signed in and ready to use PLC.

If you want to open links from PLC that lead to Westlaw you will also need to have Westlaw already open in another browser tab from this URL:
