IALS Transformation Project 2018-2020

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies occupies 8 floors of Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square - part of the listed Grade II Bedford Way building designed by Sir Denys Lasdun.  The University of London has agreed to a muti-million pound refurbishment for the IALS building starting in July 2018. The project will replace the infrastructure with new heating, cooling, ventilation, cabling and wifi. This major project will take around two years but we will remain open throughout.
