The Library is open to all barrister and student members of the four Inns of Court.

Library Services and Covid-19

Please see the Inn's dedicated Covid-19 page for the latest updates on the Inn's response to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and the measures being taken to keep members safe.

The Library is currently open to members Monday - Friday 9am - 8pm

The remote enquiry and document supply service continues to operate but charges have been reinstated.

Please email the Library for general enquiries or make a document supply request.

Please note we will give priority to requests made for the purpose of judicial proceedings. Members are also asked not to send the same request to more than one Inn Library. 
If the Library does not hold an item staff will advise where it can be obtained. 

Thank you for your co-operation.
