Clark County Law Library
By statute, the Law Library provides a professional legal collection for judges, prosecutors, other lawyers and county and state officials. This collection is open to the public anytime the library is open.
The library is self-service. Staff can help find material, but cannot give legal advice or interpretations. About 80 percent of reference questions asked here are posed by members of the general public.
The library has books and computer resources to help you find answers to your legal questions. Print materials include state statutes and administrative codes, cases, books that discuss the laws specific to Washington and more generally, continuing legal education materials and more.
Online sources include many Westlaw databases as well as Lexis Washington Enhanced databases, but these subscription products must be used at the library.
Please note: we are a legal reference library, so none of the materials can be checked out by people who are not attorneys.
The next Law Library Board of Trustees meeting is March 18, 2019. Please go to the county calendar for more information.
