Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Library

Current academic staff and postgraduate research students (PhD, MPhil, MRes) can join the IALS Library free of charge.

Postgraduate taught-course students (e.g. LLM students) are not normally admitted, but King's LLM students are able to join due to our agreement with IALS. Undergraduate students with particularly niche research interests may also be able to join, but this is at the discretion of the library. 

How to join

Academic staff applicants need to download an application form. Postgraduate students or academic legal researchers need to apply online.
