International Association of Law Libraries
19th Annual Course on International Law Librarianship
20th - 24th August 2000
Conferences of the International Association of Law Libraries draw law
librarians from around the world to discuss foreign, comparative and international
legal information issues and their legal context. They are held in a different
city each year. In August 2000 IALL meets in Dublin, a great city which
retains a charm and character of its own.
The full documentation including programme, registration form, hotel
information and accommodation booking form are on the IALL web site (http://iall.org).

The programme �A Common Law for Europe� will address a range of issues
including: the convergence and interaction of legal systems in Europe,
Irish law and legal literature, and Internet access to legal materials.
The venue is the Dublin International Arbitration Centre run by the
Bar Council of Ireland. This is situated in the heart of legal Dublin not
far from the Four Courts. It is a modern facility built within the walls
of the old Jameson�s Distillery.
Events and Visits
There will be a reception in the famous Long Room, the extraordinary
barrel-vaulted library of Trinity College Dublin, with a private opportunity
to view the Book of Kells and the museum in which it is housed. On other
evenings there will be a Civic Reception by the Lord Mayor, a traditional
Irish evening of music and dancing, and the Annual Dinner will be at King�s
Inns with a reception in the ancient library of the Inns. A range of visits
will be offered, including the Irish Writers� Museum and the James Joyce
Centre, as well as a tour of the beautiful Irish countryside.
