The Wake Forest University Law Library, as a government depository, is open to the general public. The library is generally open to the public on weekdays during the day. Please call the Library to confirm hours prior to visiting and to make an appointment. Use by members of the public is limited to the U.S. Government Documents, as part of our responsibilities as a selective U.S. Federal Depository library. Unfortunately, no materials in the government documents collection circulate.  All use of library materials is on-site.   Upon visiting the library, any person may be asked to show proper identification in order to use library materials.

A helpful resource may be the “How to Research a Legal Problem: A Guide for Non-Lawyers” produced by AALL. This guide is intended to help a person with a legal problem find legal rules that can resolve or prevent conflict. It is most useful to work through the steps and sources in the order given.
