Looking for a home for unwanted legal textbooks?

Plateau State, Nigeria held a handover ceremony of ILBF books on 12th March with Hon. Justice D.G Mann, Chief Judge Plateau State, who is in the centre of the photo.

If you are looking to dispose of unwanted but still useful legal textbooks, the International Law Book Facility (ILBF) would be delighted to hear from you.

The ILBF’s mission is to share legal knowledge – since it was founded in 2005 by Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, the ILBF has shipped 88,000 books to 280 organisations in 57 countries. Books are donated by law students, lawyers, law firms, barristers’ chambers, courts and legal publishers; teams of volunteers sort and pack books ready for shipment by sea freight to the organisations supported by the ILBF. The books support the rule of law, access to justice and legal education in judiciaries, law schools, NGOs, law commissions, parliaments, professional bodies and prisons.

Birmingham lawyers and firms can help the ILBF to make a difference. A book packing day will take place in Birmingham in early July so books can be donated locally. If you would like to find out more about how you can help, with books and/or funding, please get in touch with Katrina Crossley at katrinacrossley@ilbf.org.uk.

Guidelines on the types of books that are wanted are here.
