Supreme Court Law Library

Photo of Library Main RoomThe Supreme Court Law Library originated with an 1867 Act of the Indiana legislature which gave custody of the law books then in the State Library to the Supreme Court.

The primary mission of the Supreme Court Law Library is to support the research needs of the judges, staff and agencies of the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court Law Library also serves as the primary law library for many state agencies, the Office of the Governor, the legislature, members of the private bar, and the citizens of Indiana.

The Law Library contains a comprehensive collection of legal materials of over 70,000 volumes and is a repository for publications produced under grants from the State Justice Institute. These publications are made available to Judges throughout the state. The Law Library is also designated as a selective depository for United States Government publications.
