Description

This workshop is being jointly organised by the British Library, the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and the Socio-Legal Studies Association.  Drawing on the expertise of archivists and academics working in the field the focus of the day will be on the methodological considerations and problems involved in doing archival research for legal biographies.  The aim of the day is to draw attention to archives that newcomers to the field may not be aware of and to consider the practical problems involved in analysing sources.  This day long event will be taking place at the IALS on Wednesday 15th May 2013.
