The Dakota County Law Library provides legal information to residents, attorneys, judges, and represented and pro se litigants that is vital to the justice system.
The Law Library uses the latest technology to deliver legal information. We work with organizations to increase access while avoiding costly and ineffective duplication of forms and paperwork.
