Legal Advice and Referrals: Introduction

Introduction

The Law Library is staffed and funded to serve the scholarly needs of University of California students, faculty and staff.  Its primary purpose is to provide a place for the study and research of law. 

As librarians, we can help you find legal information that will help you answer your question. If we do not have the information, we may be able to direct you to a place to find answers.  We are not attorneys so cannot provide legal advice such as helping you fill out forms or interpreting the law. We have compiled this guide to help direct you to resources for legal advice with an emphasis on free and low-cost alternatives.

The California Courts Online Self-Help Center is an excellent place to begin.  It provides comprehensive information about the California Courts system, types of claims, information on a variety of legal topics, forms and more.
