The Committee promotes the continuing professional development of members. It monitors education and training needs, offers training courses, seminars, meetings and visits and advises on the intellectual content of the annual study conference. The Committee also monitors relevant national and international developments in education and training and promotes research in law librarianship and the study of legal information.
The Committee, which is comprised of law librarians from a variety of institutions including law firms, universities and Inns of Court, meets four times a year to plan and organise forthcoming events. The work carried out by members of this Committee is all purely voluntary. Each member takes responsibility for the planning of a particular course or event. The Committee is very grateful to those people who agree to speak at our courses and volunteer to host events. Anyone who is interested in assisting the work of the Committee or has any ideas for future events should contact the Committee Chair.
In addition to courses, the Cheese and Wine evening and the quiz night are annual Professional Development Committee events.
The Committee is always looking for new members or those willing to be involved with a particular event as a speaker or host. If you would like to find out more or become involved, please contact the Committee Chair.
This item on the practicalities of arranging, hosting or speaking at a course gives some background on what is involved. See more information about training courses we run on the Training Courses page.
