Welcome to the DuPage County Law Library

Attention Library Users:

As noted in Administrative Order 20-8 the Law Library will be closed beginning Wednesday March 17th. We will reopen Monday June 8th at 8:00am. 

4/20 Update:

Patrons,

Remote Westlaw access for library patrons is currently available! Westlaw has generously provided temporary access to patrons while the law library is closed. This temporary access provides patrons with 20 hours of legal research time over 45 days. Patrons will have access to resources from our primary, secondary, and litigation collections on Westlaw Edge. Patrons can register here: https://legal.thomsonreuters.com/en/forms/try-westlaw.  Registration instructions can be found here: Westlaw Temporary Access Guide

Have a question about:

  • getting a divorce?
  •  order of protection?
  • a vehicle forfeiture?
  • what forms you need?

You can email the law library manager at Mary.Anderson@18thjudicial.org with your legal questions and receive a reply within 1-2 business days. We are happy to help you remotely while the Stay-At-Home Order is in effect.

Please note: We can provide legal information but not legal advice.

 

Please be aware that all volunteer attorney help desks have been cancelled until further notice. This includes the Domestic Relations Pro Se Help Desk (Mondays & Wednesdays) and the Ask A Lawyer Help Desk (Thursday April 16th).

Mission

The mission of the DuPage County Law Library is to provide legal information services to all licensed attorneys, judges, as well as members of the public. Our goal is to provide our patrons with accurate, up-to-date legal information. To achieve this goal we are committed to tailoring the law library's collection to meet the needs of the legal community. The library currently maintains a core print collection of 26,000 volumes. The library also provides access to electronic databases and internet resources for legal research. These materials include compilations of state and federal statutes, state and federal cases, digests, encyclopedias, regional reporters, treatises, forms and legal periodicals.

NOTE: Litigants representing themselves in court or performing research in the law library are advised NOT to bring electronic devices with them to the courthouse. Devices with cameras, such as smartphones and computers, will not be allowed into the courthouse/library. Lockers are available on the first floor of the parking garage to store your valuables.

Location

The library is located on the 2nd floor at the south end of the DuPage County Judicial Center. It overlooks the pond which provides a great view year round. Work and reading areas are located by the windows allowing for natural reading light. There is seating available to over 40 persons. Each year upwards of 35,000-40,000 patrons use the library.
