NEW Research Service for Attorneys

The law library is pleased to announce a new research service to provide quick email answers to requests for cases, issues, topics, or titles to attorneys. This service will save the time and energy usually spent coming into the law library to obtain the same information we can email directly to your office. A small service fee of $1.00 per transmitted page will be charged and a Research Service Account can be set up with our office. Contact Carol J. Forbes, J.D., Assistant Director for Program Services at 904.255.1150 to enroll in this new service.
