For materials in which copyright subsists (which will be the position in the vast majority of cases), we are able to provide photocopies for the following purposes:
1. Judicial proceedings
2. Non-commercial research or private study

1. Copies for judicial proceedings
Requests for material for the purposes of judicial proceedings may be made by e-mail, phone or fax.
Please provide full details of the item(s) you require and confirm that the copying is required for judicial proceedings.

2. Copies for non-commercial research or private study
Requests for material for non-commercial research or private study can be emailed or faxed to the Library.

Email: Please email the details of your request, including your name, the material you require and the following declaration:

I declare that –
(a) I have not previously been supplied with a copy of the same material by any library;
(b) I require the copy for the purposes of research for a non-commercial purpose or private study, will use it only for those purposes and will not supply the copy to any other person; and
(c) to the best of my knowledge no other person with whom I work or study has made or intends to make, at or about the same time as this request, a request for substantially the same material for substantially the same purpose.

I understand that if the above declaration is false in a material particular, the copy supplied to me by you, if and insofar as it would have been an infringing copy if made by me, will be treated as an infringing copy for all purposes and that I shall be liable for infringement of copyright as if I had made the copy myself.

Fax: Please print and complete the declaration form and fax it to the Library

We can supply the following material for non-commercial research or private study:
• one article in any one issue of a periodical, or
• a reasonable proportion of any other published work

The per page charge is 20p by post or e-mail. There is a handling charge of £6 for the first item, and then £3.00 for each additional item requested at the same time. VAT is also payable. An invoice will be sent by post when the copies have been supplied.

The Library can also obtain photocopies from the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies including copyright-cleared copies where for copyright reasons we are unable to supply. The Standard Service is £21.80 + VAT per item copyright-cleared (less 10% for judicial proceedings and non-commercial purposes): items ordered before 12 noon will be dispatched later the same day. The Express Service is available at £43.60 + VAT per item (and 10% discount as above) for dispatch in under 60 minutes. Make requests to the Library not direct to the IALS.
