Arriving in London late?

It is strongly recommended that you attend the training sessions in the autumn term, especially if you are new to the library, to law or to using legal databases in the UK. If you can't make the training due to late arrival in London, please get in touch and we can give you a brief run through of what you need to know to use the library effectively.
