The UNC Law Library is pleased to announce that we have a new digital subscription to the Financial Times available for all law school faculty, students and staff. The Financial Times is a daily international newspaper, headquartered in London, with especially good coverage of business and economic news. FT offers options for customizing your homepage and creating alerts. Faculty and students can create virtual reading lists of articles to share with classes or colleagues. FT also provides a number of curated newsletters on different topics. 

Registration:

Choose this link (ft.com/unclaw) from a law school or law library desktop computer (NOT a mobile device). FT will send a follow-up email with authentication instructions. Once registered, you can download the FT app to a mobile device or use FT.com from anywhere you have an internet connection.  

A great introductory video to the Financial Times can be found here: ​https://youtu.be/oT16rx-tvs4
