Archival Information

Appraisal, destruction and scheduling information:

 During the Records of Legal Education project (1994-1998), records created or obtained by Prof Twining as an officer of a the Committee of Heads of University Law Schools, the Commonwealth Legal Education Association, the Society of Public Teachers of the Law (later SLS) and of the Commonwealth Legal Records Project were transferred to the collections held at IALS and catalogued as part of these collections (see Related Material below).  This practice has been discontinued and the material deposited at IALS after this period has been catalogued as part of the Prof Twining collection.

 In addition, obvious duplicates have been deaccessioned and material not related to legal education or Professor Twining’s career.  For specific appraisal decisions please see under the relevant series descriptions.

 Archival history: the records have been deposited with IALS in two tranches.  The first tranche was received between 1995 and 1997 as part of the Records of Legal Education project.  The papers related the Law in Context series, Laws In London project and the review of the University of London LLM course, as well as papers relating to the Committee of Heads of University Law Schools, the Commonwealth Legal Education Association, the Society of Public Teachers of the Law (later SLS) and of the Commonwealth Legal Records Project

 In March 2013, a second set of material was deposited at IALS via Professor Fiona Cownie who sorted, appraised and identified the material, prior to its transfer to IALS.
