This "Self-Help: Finding Laws, Court Rules & More" guide provides links to websites where users can find statutes (laws passed by legislatures), court rules, regulations, and caselaw for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and/or the federal government. This is a good place to start if you are new to legal research.
Members of the public are welcome to visit the Jenkins Law Library for $5 a day (Mon. - Fri., 8:30am - 5pm) to do their own research.
Jenkins librarians can help you find and use books and legal databases on our computers. Jenkins staff are not attorneys, so we cannot give you answers to your legal questions or give you legal advice. We cannot select or fill out forms, write briefs or memorandum, or conduct any research for you.
Here are some examples of books on doing legal research that are available at the Jenkins Law Library. Ask a librarian if you want help finding them.
