The Law Society Library was established in 1825 and holds data on solicitors going as far back as c.1200. Most of their genealogy resources are unique, containing historical data on not just solicitors and articled clerks (trainees), but law firms as well. One such unique collection was discovered in a blocked up cupboard just a few years ago; a small metal document box was found to contain over 40,000 microfiche records on individual solicitors who had died prior to 1971. The Law Society is a members only Library, but as custodian of the records they ensure they are made accessible to all.
