Oxford Law Reports Citator: 

The law school's subscription database Oxford International Law Reports has a citator. 

Use the Citator to:

  • find a definitive citation for a piece of legal information

  • find other things that discuss or mention something (e.g. a case, or a legislative or treaty provision)

  • find other items in the same subject area or from the same jurisdiction, and

  • link onwards to reliable full text of relevant sources, on OUP services or the wider web

  • From any content page, click the Oxford Law Citator icon above the Table of Contents on the left side of the screen to go to the Citator record for that document.
  • The Citator record will open in the same browser window. If you want to open it in a new tab, keeping your original document open, right click on the icon with your mouse and select “Open in new tab”

  • Alternatively, click on any bibliographic link in the content to call up a box containing the full citation, together with a link to the Oxford Law Citator for that item, and a link to the full text where available on an OUP service.

If you do not have access to a citator then sure you subscribe to blogs and newspapers!  Here is a great movie on YouTube that explains in plain  English how you can subscribe to various services:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0klgLsSxGsU

News sources are great resources in that respect. There are many newspapers and newsportals out  there. I recommend that you check out: http://jurist.org/  JURIST is a web-based legal news and real-time legal research service powered by a mostly-volunteer team of over 60 part-time law student reporters, editors and Web developers led by law professor Bernard Hibbitts at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

So are blogs: Here are a couple of blogs that you may want to check in with:
