The San Diego Law Library is your access point for legal information. You will find resources to help you navigate your court case and other legal issues youDavid Whelan, Director San Diego Law Library experience in your life. Our knowledgeable staff can help guide you to the most relevant information. While we work primarily from downtown San Diego, our librarians regularly travel throughout the county to bring the information access to where you are. We partner with legal service providers and public libraries to make legal information access better. You can see us in person or call and email our staff.

You can access these legal resources and our staff for free. Since 1891, the San Diego Law Library has provided free legal information to county residents, funded by fees paid to the courts. We know that it can be a challenge to get help understanding your legal needs and we want to make it as easy for you as possible.

We want to help you help yourself. If you have ideas of how we can help you better, please email us at and share them.
