Survey report outlining the activities and funding of academic law libraries in the UK and Ireland in the academic year 2016/2017. 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 Society of Legal Scholars (SLS). The report is based on returns from 90 university and college libraries in the UK and Ireland (institutions offering either undergraduate, postgraduate or vocational courses) who responded to the survey conducted in March 2018. 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 report includes a summary of key findings, a compilation of the statistics, conclusions drawn from the figures and illustrative diagrams.

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, sponsored by British and Irish Association of Law Librarians (BIALL), will appear in the journal Legal Information Management in 2018
