The letter from Jules Winterton, the President, International Association of Law Libraries Librarian and Associate Director Institute of Advanced Legal Studies University of London to Valery Grigoriev, the Vice Dean Faculty of Law St Petersburg State University
- I am writing on behalf of the International Association of Law
Libraries to thank you for your important part in making its 25th
Course in International Law Librarianship which was recently held at
the Faculty of Law of St Petersburg State University and at various
locations in Moscow such a great success.
The quality of the programme for our Course was outstanding in both its educational and social aspects. There is no doubt that it was one of our most successful conferences. It attracted almost 100 people from over 25 countries. I have had very complimentary comments from many of them about the programme, the locations, and the superb organisation.
I want to thank you for your time and dedication in playing such a major part in the organisation of this conference. It takes considerable skill, determination and imagination to run a complex and lengthy conference so smoothly and to the satisfaction of so many different people. I congratulate you for this achievement.
I am also most grateful to your organisation for permitting you to play such a major part in the conference.
I always believed that a meeting of the International Association of Law Libraries in Russia would be enjoyable and important and so it proved.
I am sure it has gone a long way to help delegates from around the world to understand and appreciate your country. The delegates will go back and talk about the course to many people and I'm sure they will have very positive things to say.
