Sources will include the records of legal education, academic and membership organisations and material relating to professional practice. The article also provides guidance to researchers on using the IALS Archive. Elizabeth Dawson was Archivist (part – time) at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies from 2003 to 2014, where she developed archive collections and research facilities.
