The Ross-Blakley Law Library primarily serves the needs of the students and faculty of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Our collections and resources are dedicated to the educational and research pursuits of our students and faculty.
As part of ASU’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to the BCLS building is available only to College of Law students, faculty, and staff. The library is not open to walk-in visitors, but we may be able to offer some services remotely.
Reference librarians are available to answer questions about legal research through our Ask a Librarian service. The librarians of the Ross-Blakley Law Library have also prepared Research Guides on a variety of legal topics including Arizona, Federal, and Foreign and International laws.
Local community members may also find useful services offered through the Maricopa County Superior Court Law Library. The Superior Court Law Library's collection and service options are aimed at assisting those representing themselves in a legal matter. They have many resources, including: case information, court forms, a Self-Service Center, and much more. Please consider consulting their website so you can make the best choice for your legal needs.
