Taking into consideration the current Coronavirus situation, we have decided to close the Library for the foreseeable future. We will continue to monitor the government guidelines and hope to be able to resume library services as soon as we possibly can.
We continue to offer a document delivery service between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday-Friday for barrister members of all four Inns. There will be no charge during the coronavirus situation, but the relevant form (Judicial Proceedings or Private Research) must be completed. The forms are available on our website.
The Library will close for Christmas at 2.00pm on Monday 21 December and reopen at 10.00am on Monday 4 January 2021. This calendar gives the opening hours of all four Inn Libraries over the Christmas vacation.
