The Cobb Law Library provides legal information and resources to all, including the Judiciary, attorneys, paralegals, self-represented litigants and the general public.

Library personnel are committed to providing high-quality service and we recognize the value of access legal information.
Staff may assist with legal research and resources. But, we can not give legal advice or interpret the law for you.

About Us

The Cobb County Law Library was established in 1967. 

Pursuant to state legislation, a Board of Trustees is responsible for making all rules and regulations governing the Law Library. Under the direction of the Board of Trustees and the Law Librarian, the Cobb County Law Library was created for the express "use of judges, solicitors, ordinaries and other officers of Cobb County" as a legal research facility. The Law Library is governed by O.C.G.A. 36-15-1 through 36-15-13.

The mission of the Cobb County Law Library is to provide a central location for accessible legal research. Resources include bound print publications, access to online legal research engines, and a collection of legal periodicals. 

In 2023, the Cobb County Law Library participated in the Survey of Law Library Services to the Self-Represented Litigant. Click here to see the results and find other research centers near you.

Our staff is available to help you learn to use Westlaw.
