In Florida, law libraries that are open to the public and that have the legal materials that may be helpful can be found in many courthouses, in some local libraries, and in law school libraries.
While services vary among law libraries, many have computer workstations with internet access, online legal research databases, copy machines and printers available for your use. A few are self-service only with no librarian available.
Librarians can help find materials you may need, show you the basics of doing research, point you in the right direction, and provide a meaningful next step if you’re feeling confused.
But it’s also important to know that there are limits to what law librarians can help you do. They cannot give you legal advice or tell you how to complete your paperwork.
