The ILBF welcomes your vacation donations!

As the Trinity term draws to a close, law students begin to enjoy their vacations and colleagues across the legal profession enter the summer period, it is a perfect time to take stock of your law library bookshelves. By donating your spare legal texts to the ILBF, you can share essential legal knowledge and connect with lawyers and communities across the world.

Access to legal texts and resources is taken for granted in the UK, but for many lawyers around the world, this is not the case. The ILBF helps to equip lawyers and judges with essential resources to allow the rule of law to flourish and ensure access to justice.

The availability of good quality legal texts has an incredibly positive impact on the legal profession and helps to facilitate the administration of justice. The ILBF ships resources to a wide range of recipients, including students, courts and law reporters. Providing judiciaries with up to date texts also helps to inform judgments, and the reporting, revision and updating of laws.

Books donated to the ILBF reach organisations across the world and the impact stretches from the recipients, to clients and sometimes to whole communities. For instance, the ILBF has worked with Justice Defenders (formerly known as the African Prisons Project) since 2008. In that time, we have shipped over 2,000 books to provide much needed resources to prison libraries. For a recent update and feedback from recipients in Uganda, see: Proud to support the work of Justice Defenders.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the lawyers, students, judges and librarians who regularly donate books to the ILBF. Together we are making a difference, thank you.
