The LA Law Library meets the needs of the public and legal community.            

As the second largest public law library in the United States, LA Law Library meets the needs of the public, self-represented litigants and the legal community in a dynamic, ever-evolving global environment where information is shared, updated and accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

The LA Law Library is:
  • A curator and cultivator of a superior collection of one million volume equivalents. This collection includes Federal and State materials, a comprehensive California collection and one of the nation's largest foreign and international law collections.
  • A gateway to legal information and resources. LA Law Library serves a primary connection between the courts, legal service providers, and the public, and the most current legal information (accessible online and print) coupled with extensive historical information.
  • A navigator of the courts and legal system. LA Law Library serves as an integral partner with the Los Angeles County Superior Court and other courthouses and administrators throughout the county and state, thereby giving the public and self-represented litigants unique direction on how to address their legal concerns.

With a newly renovated Main Library in Downtown Los Angeles, located steps from the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, self-service digital research stations recently introduced in the Norwalk and Pomona county courthouses, and expanding relationships with legal aid foundations, pro bono organizations, bar associations and public libraries, LA Law Library is becoming a robust community education center for the residents of Los Angeles County, the state of California and the world.
