Report outlining the activities and funding of academic law libraries in the UK and Ireland in the academic year 2014/2015. The figures have been taken from the results of a survey questionnaire undertaken by Academic Services staff at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies on behalf of the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians (BIALL). The Annual Academic Law Library Survey provides a snapshot of the staffing, expenditure on acquisitions, subscriptions to databases and range of services provided in the academic year 2014/2015 by 93 university and college libraries in the UK and Ireland. It is the only survey of its kind and provides data which academic law library managers use to bench-mark their own services and law course validation bodies note when appraising the provision of institutions seeking to run law courses. The survey report includes a summary of key findings, graphical representation of statistical analysis and list of academic law libraries in the UK and Ireland that returned a completed 2014/2015 survey questionnaire.

Additional Information: This survey has been run on an annual basis since 1996 and reported in The Law Librarian and latterly in Legal Information Management. It is sponsored either by the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians (BIALL) or by the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS). This report has been published on the BIALL website (member login) and will appear in the journal Legal Information Management.
