The Macon County Law Library located on the 3rd floor of the Macon County Circuit Court serves the legal information needs of the legal profession, judiciary, self represented litigants and the public. The library offers an extensive library of practical legal resources in print as well as legal databases provided.
WESTLAW ACCESS In a continued effort to support equal access to justice, the Macon County Law Library and Thomson Reuters are sharing a great resource for our patrons. Our Law Library offers critical services to the public, including access to online legal research through Westlaw. With that said, we want to make this transition to our "new normal" easier. Thomson Reuters is offering our patrons utilization of Westlaw, while they are safely sheltering in place, by registering online with their own unique credentials. Temporary access provides patrons with 20 hours of legal research time in 14 days. Patrons will have access to resources from our primary, secondary and litigation collections on Westlaw Edge. Patrons can register here: https://legal.thomsonreuters.com/en/c/remote-patron-access
