Barristers may use the Law Society Library on Thursday 21 December from 2pm – 5pm and Friday 22 December 9am – 3pm, and from Tuesday 2 January 9am – 5pm to Wednesday 3 January 9am – 5pm. Please contact them before visiting on 020 7320 5946.
The Library will close for Christmas at 2.00 p.m. on Thursday 21 December and reopen at 9.00 a.m. on Thursday 4 January 2018. This calendar gives the opening hours of all four Inn Libraries over the Christmas vacation.
We are sure that members of the Inns who have benefited from their legal research skills and comprehensive knowledge of the collections would wish to join us in congratulating two members of the library team, Michael Frost and Simon Hindley, on completing 30 years of service with the Inn.
A number of design review meetings as well as meetings on temporary accommodation have taken place with heads of departments, the architects and consultants. Pre-application discussions on arrangements for temporary accommodation in the Garden and car park are taking place with the City planners. A further debate about Project Pegasus will take place at a future Bench Table meeting at which time Benchers will have full details of the project and a comprehensive cost analysis. There will be a further ballot after this discussion.
The October issue includes an update on Project Pegasus; reports on recent outreach and training events for new students and pupils respectively; news of our revised Guide to sources of transcripts; and features on our contribution to celebrations of Black History Month, on new acquisitions, and on the Europe section of AccessToLaw.
On 26 September and 6 October the Deputy Librarian will be attending the Inner Temple’s introductory evenings for new students and will be happy to answer any questions about the Library and what it can offer.
