Welcome to the Judicial Law Libraries of the State of Delaware. We have been serving the Delaware Judiciary Since 1911.
The primary purpose of the law library is to provide comprehensive and responsive legal research and information assistance to the Delaware Judiciary by providing the optimum balance of current technology, legal tools, and information training. The law libraries also lend assistance to surrounding state agencies and members of the legal community. Additionally, the libraries provide support to the general public, legal scholars, and those representing themselves in the Delaware Court system.
AGENCY STATUTORY AUTHORITY: The law library in each county is maintained for the use of the Judges of the courts shall be under the control and supervision respectively of the judges of the Court of Chancery and of the Superior court residing in the county 10 Del. C. § 1941.
