The Athens-Clarke County Law Library is funded under the Western Judicial Circuit Superior Court. The Law Library’s primary purpose is for legal research, but it also has a lawyer's lounge and restroom facilities for meetings and conferences.
The Law Library has an excellent collection of resources, including but not limited to:
- Codebooks: OCGA (state) and USCS (federal)
- Volumes of United States reports and Supreme Court reports
- Georgia laws
- Legal digests
- Legal encyclopedias including CJS, some volumes of Words and Phrases, and Georgia Jurisprudence
- State court reports: Georgia Supreme Court Reports (Ga.) and Georgia Appellate Reports (Ga. App.)
The Law Library also has computer research capability and recently acquired Lexis / Nexis, a legal computer research source with many resources from other jurisdictions as well as Georgia. We also have Westlaw.
