Both print and electronic legal reference material resources are available. Two computers are available with selected legal-related internet sites and research databases, including Westlaw. Printing from these two computers is free to all Law Library patrons using the printer that is connected to the computers.  There is also a photocopy machine in the Law Library.   We ask that you not print anything over 25 pages in length.  Anything longer, please download a PDF of the document from the Law Library computer to your home computer or send the link of the document to your home computer or smart phone.  If you are using the photocopy machine, also limit your number of pages to less than 25. Due to previous misuse of library resources, paper for the printer and copy machine is only guaranteed available during the hours the Law Library is open.

There are also many self-help brochures and handbooks that cover a wide range of legal topics. These brochures are made available to patrons free of charge.

The Law Library's books cannot be checked out.
