Statewide Study Report Now Available!

The Public Access to Legal Information Committee of the Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin is pleased to announce the results of a year-long study of the public access to legal information and assistance in Wisconsin. Published in a 40-page report, the study compares access levels across libraries and courts, as well as noting success stories in the area of legal assistance to the public. An historical overview of the laws regarding county law libraries, as well as several sets of data, are included.

Print copies are available for $5.00 each, otherwise the report is available on the LLAW website at:

Many, many thanks go out to the LLAW members who helped with this study, especially those who offered significant comments on the drafts. A special thank you to Wisconsin State Law Librarian Jane Colwin, who read every single draft!
