You can access all our legal resources via the Online databases and academic journals page in the portal to use individual resources.

Most of the full-text journals available within the law databases are not accessible via LibrarySearch, so you will need to access them directly from the databases.

You may find that there is a section within these resource that is specific to the area of law you're interested in. For example, Lexis Library has several Practice Areas, including Employment, which will point you to relevant legislation and journal articles.
