The Texas State Law Library is open to the public and has a circulating collection of over 100,000 volumes.
Some of our most commonly used primary law materials include the Texas Statutes and the Texas Constitution, the Texas Register, the Texas Administrative Code, United States Code, the Federal Register, and the Code of Federal Regulations. In addition to primary law, our collection contains legal treatises, practice guides, form books, law journals, magazines, newspapers, the National Reporter System, and the American Law Reports. We also have a special collection of rare books and old British law and statutes. While we are also a selective depository library, we do not receive many new federal government documents.
Individuals wishing to borrow materials from the Texas State Law Library must become registered borrowers. The applicant must be a Texas resident or be employed by a Texas state agency. A state-issued photo ID is required to register. See our borrowing policy for more details.
