Inns of Court libraries

The Inns of Court play a central role in the recruitment, training and professional life of barristers, holding the exclusive rights to call candidates to the bar of England and Wales. Their libraries include a wealth of resources not readily available elsewhere. See below for information on each Inn Library:

One of the four Inn Libraries will be open from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. on each Saturday during the legal terms. Click here to see the Saturday opening timetable for the four Inn Libraries up to December 2015.


We have a selection of pupillage books at Gray's Inn Place Library which you can find by searching CityLibrary Search.

The City Law School have some excellent career support resources available online. Their 'Pupillage Advisory Service' provides advice, information and assistance, both to those looking for and those who have already obtained pupillage.

The City Law School career support website has a lot of useful information about applying for a training contract. The Training Contracts Advisory Service provides guidance through the process of finding employment both within the legal profession, and in the public and commercial sectors of the economy. You can start using the service as soon as you accept your place on the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at The City Law School.
