Ask A Librarian

Reference service is available to all patrons of the Thomas M. Cooley Law School Library.  The Reference Service Policy for the Cooley Law Library sets out the level of services and limits giving any legal advice on law-related inquiries. Any response by Thomas M. Cooley Reference Staff should not be construed or interpreted as legal advice.
