The library's doors may be closed to the public and our website may be down, but our librarians are still hard at work providing legal information to Texans. We encourage you to reach out to us!


The State Law Library is a public law library. We help serve the legal research needs of all Texans. We are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice, but we can help you find answers to your legal questions.

The library is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. but our e-books (legal practice guides, practice manuals, annotated codes) remain available at all times to patrons with active library accounts. If you have questions about your account, contact us.


Our legal guides by topic and frequently asked legal questions page are also available.

We aim to respond to your questions within one business day, but please allow up to 3 business days for a reply.
