Glasgow University School of Law Workshop awarded £6,000

The Glasgow University School of Law Workshop has been awarded £6,000 from the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) to develop a community lending law library.

The project will allow potential students to visualise themselves as studying at the University of Glasgow and consider a future career in law.

These students will be invited to the law library to socialise and integrate with other individuals from all different backgrounds and ages, whilst using the library’s facilities and undertaking introductory legal skills sessions. The School of Law plans to create a lending library section for these groups, to support outreach activities.

Current law students will be invited to join this project, inspiring them to think about what motivated them to study law and what books they would suggest to others, in a participatory selecting of stock. This will help to support students by creating a sense of community at a time when many students report feeling isolated and detached from other students and the University as a whole. By speaking about their experiences, students will also be able to increase their employability skills by showing they are able to facilitate the development of community.

As part of the project, the university is inviting staff and alumni to share their suggestions of books that inspired them to pursue the study of law. Please email with your recommendations.
