Frequently Asked Legal Research Questions

These guides aim to answer questions frequently asked of the staff at the Inner Temple Library. The sources suggested are not intended to be exhaustive.  Rather they are sources that the staff have found to be most useful. They include free web-based sources, hard copy materials and subscription-based databases. 

Some of the guides include information on works held by the Inns of Court Libraries, which are open to members of the Inns of Court only.

Please note that the subscription-based databases mentioned are available for use in the Inner Temple Library by members of the Inns of Court only. These databases cannot be accessed remotely because of restrictions in our licence agreements. Members of the public are advised to contact a public reference library to enquire if the databases or publications listed are available locally. (Quick Reference Guides to some of the subscription-based databases can be found in the Library Guides section of the website.)

The guides are also available in PDF format (Adobe Acrobat Reader required).  Click on the Acrobat icon to open the PDF version.
