The mission of the Norfolk Law Library, a public law library and non-profit foundation, is to serve the legal research needs of the general public, lawyers and the courts. The Library seeks to cooperate with the wider community to improve access to legal and law-related information and to support the law library profession.
The law library staff offers reference assistance to all, but cannot give legal opinions or interpret legal materials. Our collection does not circulate, but photocopies can be made for 25 cents per page. We will help you identify and locate sources not available in the collection.
With over 40,000 volumes, the Law Library's collection contains the published opinions of all state and federal courts; local, state, and federal statutes and administrative regulations; and sources such as legal periodicals and newspapers, treatises, form books, loose-leaf services and reference tools.
Although Library materials may not be taken from the Library, a photocopy service is available at a cost of 25 cents per page.
Copies of policies and rules are posted in the Library. The Library reserves the right to deny access to patrons whose conduct or handling of materials violates its rules or interferes with the normal operation of the facility.
