Transcripts Guide

A revised and expanded version of the Inner Temple Library’s 2006 guide to sources of transcripts will be available from February 14th as a PDF document.

Transcripts of Judicial Proceedings in England and Wales: a Guide to Sources

Compiled by Sally Mclaren

© Inner Temple Library, 2011

165 pages

The guide is intended primarily for librarians and information services staff who may need to obtain, or assist others to obtain, transcripts of the proceedings of courts and tribunals in England and Wales.

A major feature of this new edition is its greatly expanded coverage of tribunals. It is hoped that users of the guide may find this particularly useful at a time of change and transition in tribunal administration.
