The Library offers legal research training in group sessions and on a one-to-one basis for pupils, students and barristers.
We have been running a legal research training course for new pupils each spring and autumn since 2013.
The dates of the 2019 sessions on the essentials of legal research will be advertised soon.
We have also recorded the training session presentations so that they may be viewed at any time.
Note: Session 1 was recorded in August 2014 and reflects database coverage and functionality at that date. Session 2 was recorded in October 2014 and reflects database coverage and functionality at that date. Session 3 was recorded in November 2014 and reflects database coverage and functionality at that date.
The Library runs a Qualifying Session for new BPTC students in the autumn, which provides a basic introduction to legal research. The 2019 sessions will be run twice as part of the Inn’s BPTC Advocacy Day on 21 September and once as a separate event on the evening of 9 October.
We are also running a second Qualifying Session on advanced legal research for current students as part of the Inn’s BPTC Advocacy Day on 11 May 2019.
Other research resources produced by the Library which pupils and students may find useful include:
Legal Research FAQs (on UK and EU case law and legislation, treaties and parliamentary publications).
