Welcome to Legal Records at Risk

Unsuitable Storage example 2

Welcome to the Legal Records at Risk project.  According to previous studies including the British Records Association (BRA) report on Records at Risk (2011), significant records of many institutions specialised to law (ISLs) are at risk, especially because of recent developments in legal services, IT, economy and globalisation. Many records are now being “born digital” with many more paper records are being digitised. New technology may solve some problems (e.g. storage), but is creating new issues (e.g. digital continuity).

This project has been generously funded by a philanthropic donation of £100,000.
