TWIN/02/06 LLM Review, 1965-1993

Extent and form: 39 files

Scope and content: In 1992 William Twining was appointed by the University of London to review the intercollegiate LLM offered by Kings College, UCL, SOAS, LSE and Queen Mary College.  These papers are the working and research papers reviewed and created by Prof Twining during the course of this project. 

Appraisal: During the Records of Legal Education Archive project, the official papers relating to the LLM review were transferred to the archives of the University of London (UoL), the University of London being the commissioning and employing organisation for the LLM review.  It was decided, in light of the small quantity of papers in question, to retain the remaining working papers and research notes as part of the Prof Twining Archive in order to: ensure the completeness of that archive; to allow IALS to have a reference set of papers; and to ensure that there was a complete set of papers in existence, there not being time to cross check each document against the University of London holding.  During the cataloguing of these papers in 2014 and 2015 this decision was revisited and ratified on the grounds that these papers would have potential research interest for the history of legal education and therefore, whilst not necessarily forming part of the UoL collecting policy, would fit with that of IALS.   

In addition, obvious duplicates were deaccessioned during cataloguing (no attempt was made to weed out duplication between files).  Papers relating to specific UCL students found amongst these records were also deaccessioned on the grounds that they were part of the UCL corporate record and retention policy, rather than research papers, and it was unclear that whether they had been consulted during the LLM review.

Access: All items are open for research access, apart from TWIN/02/06/22 which is closed for 80 years.

System of arrangement: No original order could be determined during cataloguing: these files had already been identified as relating to the LLM review as part of the Records of Legal Education Archive Project.  Files were arranged in chronological order during cataloguing.
