Document Supply

The Library is able to supply photocopies by post or email to barristers provided that copyright is not infringed.

You can request legal materials for the purpose of judicial proceedings or private study.

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

Please complete the relevant form below. Please include as much detail about the document as possible, such as a title, author, page number, citation, party name, etc. If you’re struggling to locate cases, legislation or journal articles, we’re happy to find them for you or direct you to an alternative source.


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 for each additional item requested at the same time. VAT is also payable. An invoice will be sent when the copies have been supplied.

Charges – COVID-19

During the Library closure period, we will waive charges for document supply.
