The Harvard Law School Library is not a public law library. Our priority is serving the Harvard Law School and Harvard Library community.

As time allows, we can provide limited basic legal reference help to people outside of the Harvard community.  

By phone, text or email:

We can:

Locate items in the Harvard Law School collection

Direct you to research guides and online sources for your research

Refer you to public law libraries and legal services who may be better able to meet your needs

In person:

We can:

         Help you find books, articles and primary legal sources that can answer your question

Help you locate items when you have a citation

Help you locate forms that may be applicable to your situation

Show you how to use our catalog and databases for your research

Help you develop a research strategy for your question

We can’t:

           Advise you on how to handle a legal situation or interpret the law for you

           Tell you which laws or cases are applicable to your case

           Read definitions, cases, statutes or other sources to you over the phone

           Help you fill out forms

Print or send documents from our databases to anyone outside of the current Harvard Law School community

Scan or photocopy print sources for individuals - please direct  scan/copy requests  to your local library's interlibrary loan department

Do legal research for you
