The Law Library has lost almost 45% of its funding over the past 6 years due to reduced San Mateo County Superior Court filings. The Law Library desperately needs your help to keep our doors open! Learn more how you can help by visiting the San Mateo County Law Library Foundation.

The Law Library offers a free Consumer Law Clinic every Monday starting at 10AM. RSVP for your spot by calling (650) 358-0745.

The San Mateo County Law Library Board of Trustee will meet September 22, 2016 at 12:15pm in the second floor conference room of the San Mateo County Bar Association, 333 Bradford Street, #200, Redwood City, CA 94063. The current and previous board meeting agendas can be found here.

The Law LIbrary will be closed on Monday, September 5, 2016 in observance of Labor Day.
