We are a Public Law Library
dedicated to assisting the judiciary, local bar, local government, self-represented litigants, residents of Olmsted County, and members of the general public.

We provide access to –

  • Legal Research materials for Minnesota and the Federal 8th Circuit. Electronic resources include  WestlawNext, Fastcase, HeinOnline, and NCLC (National Consumer Law Center).
  • Brief legal advice Clinics with volunteer attorneys through our partnership with Legal Assistance of Olmsted County on the topics of Expungement, Family and Financial.
  • A Self-Help center and access to court-approved Forms for use by those representing themselves in Minnesota State District and Conciliation courts.
  • Free CLEs (Continuing Legal Education) programs for local judges, law clerks and attorneys.

We do not provide “lawyer” services.  We do not represent or advocate on behalf of anyone; we do not provide legal advice, opinion or interpretation.  If you need these services, use our Help links to find a lawyer or advocate who can assist you with your case.
