For the Public

  • Need legal help?

    The University of Michigan Law Library cannot provide legal advice. Drafting/editing documents, filling out forms, representing someone in court, or providing any advice on a legal matter—including identifying relevant laws or cases—are some of the activities that may count as providing legal advice. 

    We can, however, connect you with many resources, including some free and low-cost options.
