Law Library of Louisiana

The mission of the Law Library of Louisiana is to meet the legal information needs of Louisiana’s judiciary, state government agencies, the Bar, and the general public by providing access to legal and related materials, research assistance, and instruction in the use of legal information. Though the library’s priority is to provide legal assistance to the judiciary, especially the Louisiana Supreme Court, part of its mission is to provide public access to legal information, and the public is allowed to use the library’s resources.
