Do you have a legal question, but can’t find the answer and wonder if you need a lawyer? Want to learn more about your constitutional right to remain silent? Curious about your rights as a tenant or landlord, or wonder what “case law” is and how to find it? A new opportunity provided by the Washington County Law Library can help.

In an effort to make law library services more widely available, a law librarian is now on duty to provide assistance on a walk-in basis at both the Beaverton City Main Library and Tigard Public Library, once each month. The law librarian can help find legal resources and documents, as well as assist in using online legal research tools unique to the Law Library. Although they cannot offer legal advice, law librarians can refer people to agencies or organizations that might be able to provide some assistance.  

Regularly scheduled hours are as follows:

Tigard Public Library: second Thursday of the month, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Beaverton City Main Library: fourth Tuesday of the month, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

For access to legal information resources or legal research assistance at all other times, the Washington County Law Library is located in downtown Hillsboro at 111 NE Lincoln Street, Suite 250-L. It is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can also be contacted at 503-846-8880.
