Document Delivery

The Library can supply copies of specific cases, articles, legislation or text. Requests can be made by e-mail, fax, post, DX, LP, by phone or using the form below.

For material which is in copyright we will require a copyright declaration form signed and faxed, posted or delivered to the Library. Copies (single-sided on A4 paper) will be sent by DX, LP, faxed or available for collection on the day the request was received (if received before 4pm). We aim to satisfy requests for document delivery within 2 hours of receipt, where possible. If you have not received the requested document or an explanation for a delay please contact the Librarian. If you do not contact us it will be assumed that that the material has been safely delivered and you will be invoiced accordingly.

We can also provide Members with access to a range of further information resources, especially inter-library loans and the British Library. For the British Library's current price list please see www.bl.uk. We can also order copies of reported and unreported cases and journal articles not held in the Library. Any charges incurred in supplying materials to Members will be passed on at cost. Charges and delivery times vary depending on the supplying library and the nature of the material sought.

Overdue Books - All Library resources (except for reference materials) are borrowable for 7 days and can be renewed up to 5 times by phone or e-mail. All resources returned after the date they were due back will incur a fine of £0.10 per item per day. Please ensure your loan period does not expire and contact the Library.

Request Form

Library staff have access to a number of databases as well as the unique collection of texts and resources available in the Library and are ready to help in any way they can. Effective and in-depth legal research can therefore be carried out more cost effectively through the Library staff than by sending a fee-earner or a trainee to the Library. Please click for a list of our charges.

Requests can be made by filling in the form below. Alternatively you can contact the Library by e-mail, fax, letter (post, DX or LP) or by telephone. Results of any research can be passed on by these methods. Please note that photocopying of resources must be carried out in accordance with the provisions of copyright legislation.

While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of response, requests for research are only accepted on the basis that no liability shall attach to the Royal Faculty of Procurators for any research carried out.
