Seasons Greetings From Your Library Print E-mail

seasons-greetings-2-intro.jpg2013 has been a busy year for the Supreme Court Library, as we’ve worked to enhance services to all of our customers – including members of the Queensland Bar. It’s also been a year of significant changes, which have included:

  • establishing the library in its attractive and functional new premises within the Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law in the Brisbane CBD

  • taking over provision of the Queensland Sentencing Information Service (QSIS)

  • farewelling our long serving Librarian Aladin Rahemtula OAM in August and welcoming our new Librarian (me) in September.

David-Bratchford-cropped[2].jpgEach year the Supreme Court Library publishes the Queensland Legal Yearbook as a consolidated record of Queensland’s past legal year. The latest edition (2012) is dedicated to the opening of the Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law.  It includes:

  • essays by the project’s lead architect and eminent members of the judiciary and legal profession on aspects of the design of the building and the relocation of the courts to their new premises

  • records of court ceremonies, including valedictories and swearings-in, as well as legal speeches and lectures (including the 2012 Supreme Court Oration) held throughout the year

  • tributes to judges who passed away during 2012

  • legal personalia, including profiles of judges and magistrates and details of appointments and  admissions

  • the Queensland Legal Year in review - a timeline of key legal events for the year

  • legal statistics relating to the judiciary and legal profession, including key performance yearbook-2012.jpgindicators of the Queensland Courts

  • reviews of significant legal publications released in 2012

To celebrate the past year, your library will be providing free copies of the latest Yearbook to members of the legal profession. To collect your free copy, visit us at the library in Brisbane during court opening hours, attend a lecture or other event at the library, or contact us at librarian@sclqld.org.au to register your interest.

We look forward to assisting you with your legal information needs in 2014. If you are not already a member of the library, you can register for free on our website, under For Legal Profession ǀ Patron Registration Form.

You’re always welcome to visit us in person, telephone us on 07 3247 4393, email us at the above address, or visit our website.
