Students supporting the ILBF at the University of Law Guildford

A group of four students at the Guildford campus of the University of Law (ULaw) are offering their support by collecting student textbooks for the University of Ghana and raising money for shipping costs. In addition to creating a fundraising page, they are in the process of planning a cake sale in April.

The ILBF has long collaborated with students from the ULaw. It is great to see that partnership continue with this year’s students; supporting student lawyers across the world is invaluable.

LPC students Natalie Hawes, Katie Jacobs and Gabriel Weeks, and GDL student Hermione Buttery have already helped the ILBF pack almost 100 boxes of legal textbooks and practitioner texts for shipment to countries, such as Kenya. Through packing and preparing these boxes for shipping at both the Royal Courts of Justice and Guildford County Court, the ULaw team are helping to support legal education and access to justice internationally. 

“Working with the ILBF has been a fantastic experience for all of us involved. A particular highlight has been getting the chance to meet the Hon. Lord Justice Dingemans, who is a trustee of ILBF, at the Royal Courts of Justice. The ILBF is such an excellent charity, and being able to help provide these books to the institutions that need them the most is really rewarding.”

Gabriel Weeks, LPC student at the University of Law

“For there to be an effective justice system, access to legal resources and understanding of the law is essential. The ILBF is an amazing charity that helps to provide this, by collecting and sending second-hand law books to not-for-profit organisations around the world. Any support in assisting this important cause would be greatly appreciated!”

“The work that ILBF does to support legal education and expand access to justice worldwide is invaluable. Any donations to support their excellent work are hugely appreciated.”

Hermione Buttery, GDL student at the University of Law

“It’s been great volunteering for the ILBF. They do important work to assist the legal community around the world, and we would like to raise as much as possible so we can get more books shipped to where they are needed.”
