In this Guest Editorial for a special issue of Legal Information Management, David Gee (Deputy Librarian, Institute of Advanced Legal Studies) summaries the aims and outputs of a national socio-legal training day on legal biography organised by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, the British Library and the Socio-Legal Studies Association and held at IALS in May 2013. He introduces a series of articles developed from presentations on the day and describes how these special issue articles will help us to understand more the varied methodological concerns and problems of legal biography researchers, as well as helping to highlight the many research libraries and specialist archives which can provide expert assistance with legal biography research.
