Law Library Resources

The Law Library is open to the public and members of the bar as an information resource.  Our librarians are happy to help you with legal research, but are not able to provide legal representation, advise you about your legal matter, or fill out forms. 

Please see our guide on Legal Research Resources for the Public to find books and resources for non-lawyers and pro se litigants.
