We investigate the discovery potential for first generation leptoquarks at the LEP200 e+e- collider. We consider direct leptoquark searches using single leptoquark production via resolved photon contributions which offers a much higher kinematic limit than the more commonly considered leptoquark pair production process. Depending on the coupling strength of the leptoquark, search limits can be obtained to within a few GeV of √s. We also consider LQ limits that can be obtained from t-channel interferences effects in e+e- → hadrons.
