Bournemouth International Centre
Bournemouth, England

The British & Irish Association of Law Librarians' 50th Annual Study Conference and Exhibition will be held at Bournemouth International Centre from Thursday 13 to Saturday 15 June 2019. It is the premier event for the legal information sector.

"50 not out: past, present, future" will provide a variety of presentations and workshops covering topics such as AI, diversity and inclusivity, collaborative management, designing client-centred knowledge services, building student engagement and more. David Allen Green will also make a welcome return to reflect on the progress of Brexit since his previous presentation in 2017.

On Thursday night the Conference will host a celebratory 50th birthday party at the Aruba Bar sponsored by Justis. On Friday evening, the BIALL Annual Dinner, sponsored by LexisNexis, will include the announcement of the prestigious LexisLibrary Awards and BIALL's annual Awards.

Ahead of the conference itself we are excited to offer a pre-conference workshop on Wednesday 12th June 2019 on "Making messages stick" led by Nick Davies, barrister and the author of How to be Great at the Stuff you Hate: the straight-talking guide to persuading, selling & networking, as well as a Blue Peter Badge winner and trainer to members of The Royal Household.
