October 2012 Bar Bulletin

Law Library

Color Us Excited

By Rita Dermody


Many exciting things are happening in September and October in the Law Library. The most exciting thing is the opening of the YLD Walk-In Clinic. On Wednesdays, anyone walking into the Law Library will be able to consult with an attorney on a civil matter. The clinic is sponsored and staffed by volunteers from the Young Lawyers Division of the King County Bar Association.

In October, we will host Columbia Legal Services' Legal Financial Obligations Clinic in the Law Library on the second Monday of the month. These new clinics join the Neighborhood Legal Clinic and the Debt Collection Defense Clinic that are available on Thursdays and Tuesdays, respectively.

The Board of Trustees of the Law Library recently adopted its Rules of Conduct. These are based on the prior Rules of Use of the Law Library. We updated the policy to incorporate new technology, added a statement on the prohibition of solicitation, and added a new section describing an appeals process when someone is found in violation of the rules.

The Law Library also has added a new service for library users. Most family law form packets compiled and sold by the Family Law Facilitators Office are now available for purchase from the Law Library. In working with the Facilitators Office on this project, we ensure that users are receiving the same information, whether they purchase the packets from us or from the Facilitator's Office. Self-service copying of the forms is still available in the library for those who wish to make their own copies.

Last, but not least, the Law Library in the Maleng Regional Justice Center now has a conference room available for use. The conference room was built as part of the remodel of the MRJC to accommodate the District Court offices in Renton.

We are very excited to make these new services available to the users of the Law Library.
