Episode 30 – Interview: Katrina Crossley (International Law Book Facility)

“…It’s crazy that books are being thrown away when they could be sent to Uganda, for example, to provide useful resources to the judges…”

In this episode I interview Katrina Crossley the CEO of the International Law Book Facility (ILBF). The ILBF provides all kinds of secondhand law books to public and not-for-profit organisations around the world. We talk about:

  • The history of the ILBF and why Katrina became involved;
  • What the ILBF does and who they help;
  • How the ILBF is run;
  • How people can get involved in the organisation as volunteers;
  • How organisations can receive books. 

If you want to find out more about the ILBF or apply for your organisation to receive free legal textbooks contact the ILBF here.  Other organisations mentioned: LexisNexis, Clifford Chance, The Slynn Foundation, African Prisons Project

The legal vocabulary and general vocabulary used in the interview are explained further for Podcast Pro members.
