Upcoming Events


Welcome! Bienvenidos! Bienvenue!


You have found the San Diego Law Library at our exciting new web site. We are proud to unveil our rebuilt, reinvented and reinvigorated web presence to match our new physical surroundings downtown and around the county. While we have a new relaxed vibe, we are more committed than ever to help people who need to find the law and make it work for them.    


Since 1891 the San Diego Law Library has provided free legal information to county residents.  We are open to everyone in 2 convenient locations in Vista, and downtown San Diego. We are a no-frills operation. There are 23 of us dedicated to serving our community.  But we cannot do it alone. Through programs and outreach events, we partner with the bar associations, public libraries, schools, business groups, the courts and government agencies to provide access to the laws that can bring real justice to those seeking its help. You will find that we are a small but mighty force for the public good.


Within this website you will find links to legal resources, legal assistance, and information services.  We are here to help with your legal claim, your business questions, your homework, and your peace of mind.


Our goal is to have you make us your first choice for all your legal information needs.  Let us know how you like the new look and format, or how we can improve services, by emailing We want to hear from you.
