About the Harris County Law Library: The Harris County Law Library first opened its doors in 1915 and is the oldest, continuously-operating public law library in the State of Texas. Today, as a part of the Office of Vince Ryan, Harris County Attorney, the Law Library seeks to be of service to all and promote access to justice through access to legal resources. Located within steps of more than 80 courts and several more county agencies in downtown Houston’s courthouse complex, the Law Library is located at the point of need for access to legal information and provides the resources and educational opportunities self-represented litigants and local attorneys need to effectively participate in government processes. The Law Library also works with community partners to provide additional services, including a Houston Volunteer Lawyers information booth and circulation services from the Harris County Public Library.
