Middle Temple Library is open to all members of the four Inns of Court. We accept enquiries in special circumstances from non-members and researchers (by appointment only), and reserve the right to charge non-members for access. Please use the contact details below for further information.
*2014 Library tours are now being offered to new members of the Inn. See our Facebook page or download the pdf document to the right for further information. All attendees will be entered into a prize draw to win a bottle of champagne or a gift certificate.*
The Library holds approximately 250,000 volumes, covering all aspects of British, European and American law. We have an enquiry service staffed by specialist legal librarians, who are able to help with enquiries made in person, on the telephone, by fax or by email.
The full range of our collections can be accessed via our online catalogue.
For those who are unable to access the library in person, we offer a document delivery service.
We're on Facebook and Twitter. Please come and say hello by clicking on the respective logo.
