With 4,019 queries answered, 3,331 books borrowed, and 2,501 eBooks requested in 2023 alone, it’s no wonder the Library is one of our most popular services for solicitors.

A key Information Service, the Law Society Library also provides research and lending resources to solicitors across the country and we work hard to ensure that our members have access to the most current and relevant legal materials.

And it’s not just about books. 22,379 signed PDF judgments are freely available to download via the library catalogue, or contact the library to choose from over 800 Irish and 50,000 UK precedents (€50 plus VAT per precedent). There are also 180 precedents that are free to download from the Law Society website.

The LawWatch newsletter, which reaches 15,800 recipients, provides a weekly roundup of recent judgments, legislation, and journal articles, as well as new services like the Law Society Subject Guides.

There are now 10 of these Guides which offer a one-stop-shop of resources for a particular topic, including conveyancing, probate, wills and succession, employment law and family and child law. So far, they have received over 32,000 views since launch in January 2023.

These are just a sample of the services the Law Society Library provides to support you in practice.
