The November issue of the Library Newsletter contains news about the Library initiatives for the benefit of new students and pupils and an update on the newly designed Library website; a profile of Inner Temple member Seretse Khama to mark the 50th anniversary of Botswana’s independence; a new interactive timeline charting black British history and the law; and features on a recent gift of rare books from the library of the late Master Le Quesne, new acquisitions, and the Taxation section of AccessToLaw.
To mark Black History Month the Library has created a Black British History and the Law Timeline.
A list of New Titles and New Editions received by the Library between April and June 2016 has just been published.
An application was received by Historic England in September 2015 asking it to recommend to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) that the Inner Temple Treasury Office, Library and Hall be added to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The DCMS has considered Historic England’s recommendation and has decided that the buildings are not of special architectural interest and do not, therefore, meet the Government’s criteria for listing.
The implementation of the Treasury Building redevelopment plan will now be considered by the Project Pegasus Steering Group, chaired by David Pittaway QC, Master Reader.
To mark Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans History Month we have created a legal history timeline highlighting important legal events in LGBT history including landmark legislation and precedent-setting case law.
