During its 70th Anniversary celebrations the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London launched IALS Digital - a new name for established and evolving online services at IALS, bringing together resources, opportunities for new legal information initiatives, research projects and partnerships, and delivering support for digital legal scholarship. This paper, developed from presentations at the launch in November 2017, reports on the event and describes what the Institute plans to achieve through IALS Digital – explaining what it is, how it has developed and how it fits well with the IALS national role in the promotion and facilitation of legal research.
