Internet Services

Free wi-fi is available in the law library. Internet stations are for legal research only. Internet Services include WestlawNext and LexisAdvance.

All copies are 20¢ per page.

The Jefferson County Public Law Library is pleased to work in conjunction with various educational institutions, law firms, court systems, etc. that are interested in learning more about what services JCPLL has to offer. Library staffers are more than happy to provide tours or presentations explaining how the library is set up, the purposes of the various materials and give examples of how the resources work. Agencies may contact the library at 574-5943 if interested in setting up an educational meeting. Keep in mind that the law prohibits our staff from giving legal advice or interpreting the law.

Notary Services

Library employees Amy Hilliard and Susan Wettle are certified notaries for the state of Kentucky. Notary services are provided at $5 per document.

Document Email Services

Patrons need to have a citation or case name for each document, as we are unable to perform legal research for our patrons. There is a $5 charge for one to three citations. Two dollars for each subsequent citation. Charges can be applied to an existing copy account or can be paid over the phone with a credit card.
