Branch Law Library Locations

Branch libraries are located in courthouses of suburban judicial districts and have different operating hours than the main Library. (See below.)
Branch law libraries offer public access to electronic resources like Westlaw, Lexis, and HeinOnline, expanding access to Illinois practice materials, law reviews and journals, and out-of-state primary law resources. Please contact branch personnel for assistance.
