BIALL is the leading professional body in the UK and Ireland for information professionals working within legal information. Set up in 1969 BIALL is a self-supporting association which draws its income primarily from membership subscriptions. 

It is a voluntary organisation, with no salaried staff,  run by the members for the members. BIALL’s ongoing role is to support those within the sector and to help demonstrate the important and vital role information professionals still have within all sections of legal information.

The Association is run through its Committees and the BIALL Council.

The specifics of how the organisation is run are set out in the following documents:
