Law Library

The Law Library of the Circuit Court for Prince George's County provides public access to legal materials for attorneys and litigants. The Law Library has limited staff and resources available to assist all attorneys and litigants; therefore, a staff member cannot allocate more than about 15 minutes to assist any Law Library user. You may contact the Law Library by telephone or email at lawlibrary@co.pg.md.us

Law Library staff may respond to inquiries regarding the library’s holdings on a particular subject, and may guide Law Library users in the organization and use of materials, indices, online card catalog, digests, and texts, within the limits of staff obligations to serve all Law Library users.

However, the staff of the Law Library may not offer legal advice, perform legal research, interpret the text of a law or legal opinion, recommend or endorse any specific publication, or assist in the preparation of any legal or court document. For legal advice, you must consult an attorney.
