Courses on topics of international law librarianship and legal information have been a primary feature of IALL’s educational program since 1966. The courses have been held at prominent institutions throughout the world at intervals of one to three years, and have been offered annually since 1993. Throughout its history, the International Journal of Legal Information has published advance information and reports on the courses, as well as selected papers. Since 1994, full proceedings from the courses have usually been published in the Journal. Proceedings from some courses, as well as from other IALL meetings and programs, have been published separately.
