Due to budgetary restrictions, the Marion County Law Library in Indianapolis ceased to operate in 2010 and hasn’t reopened.

If you’d like to do some free legal research or access court forms on your own,  there are still a few options. Computers with Internet access to court forms are available at public libraries around town and at the Central Library located at 40. E. St. Clair St., phone 317-275-4100.

You can do legal research at the Ruth Lilly Law Library in I.U. Robert H. McKinney School of Law (hours and access policies).

Please note that individual courts do not have forms and their staff cannot advise you on the use of appropriate forms or assist with filling them out.
