ABC awarded Library School Bursaries in 2015 to Steve Mishkin (City University) and Rebecca Knight (Northumbria University).

About the bursaries

BIALL offers opportunities to library school students, who have an interest in legal information work, by awarding a number of bursaries to allow attendance at the BIALL Annual Study Conference.

How to apply: lDetails of the application process for a bursary will be posted on this page in Spring 2016.

Applicants should provide evidence of an interest in the law library sector.

Awarding of bursaries: In awarding a bursary the Committee may base its decision on a number of factors including:

  • the quality of the application
  • evidence of interest in the law library sector
  • whether, or not, an applicant has received a BIALL bursary in recent years. Preference may be given to those who have not benefited from a bursary in the past.
  • if there is an expectation of future commitment and performance in the law library profession

Bursary recipients may be asked to write a report to be published in the BIALL Newsletter, LIM or the BIALL Blog. Recipients may be called on to assist with some activities at the Conference, for example to help with the roving mic.
