Further information

The Legal Practice Library is the primary source of information services for the one-year postgraduate Legal Practice Course and Bar Vocational Course run by the Centre for Professional Legal Studies.

The collections reflect the teaching requirements of the Centre and emulate the type of library students may go on to use in a solicitor's practice or barrister's chambers.

There are loose-leaf publications, practitioner materials and reference works as well as a careers information section.

These information resources are complemented by the main research and study collections in the Law Library.
