Today, the Harris County Law Library celebrates the 101st anniversary of its grand opening on October 1, 1915. Although plenty has changed over the last century, one thing hasn't - the Law Library is still committed to providing patrons with access to relevant, current, accurate, and practical legal information. With free access to legal research databases, including Westlaw, Lexis Advance, Texas State Bar Practice Manuals, and more, the Law Library continues its commitment as a 21st century institution. Visit our downtown Houston location to learn more about all we have to offer.
You can also discover more about the Law Library's Century of Service through our digital exhibit. Last year, we marked the milestone with a Centennial Celebration featuring keynote speaker Chief Justice Nathan Hecht of the Supreme Court of Texas. Videos of the speakers and information about our historic institution are available on our website.
