The Augusta-Richmond County Law Library was developed to provide research and reference materials for the public, staff, and attorneys. In addition to general civil and criminal case sources, the library contains information for people who wish to represent themselves in domestic and probate legal matters. Anyone may come to the library to get legal forms or information on a variety of issues, including: state and federal law, taxes, wills, deeds, legitimation, custody, visitation, child support, annulment and divorce.
The Richmond County Law Library maintains a directory of attorneys. This listing can be used as a tool in selecting an attorney. The Law Librarian cannot recommend a specific attorney. It will be your responsibility to contact and interview an attorney whom you want to hire.
The Librarian is available to suggest possible sources, assist with technical issues, and provide bibliographic instruction. Library staff cannot perform any services that might constitute the unauthorized practice of law (such as interpreting statutes, cases or regulations, filling out forms, or advising patrons about specific legal problems). Desk space and computers are available for legal research and word processing. A self-service photocopier is available and a printer is connected to the library’s five public computers. Wireless/Internet service is accessible in the Law Library. Library materials may not be checked out or removed from the library.
