Staff-recommended reading from the
The Law at Your Fingertips
As a law librarian, I’m always on the lookout for information sources (both print and online) that a lay person can read and understand without having to have a law degree. It can often be a challenge to impart complex legal concepts to the general public. Law library staff relies heavily on referring library users to our extensive collection of free bookmarks, brochures and booklets, many of which are available on racks next to the law library's entrance. We try to put the information in your hands so that you can empower yourself with the knowledge that can inform your actions and decisions. Some of our most popular handouts include: Peace of Mind, Tenants and Landlords: A Practical Guide, Kalamazoo County's Friend of the Court Handbook, Small Claims Court, and many others that span a wide range of legal topics.
