Law Library


The Law Library serves the needs of the general public, members of the legal profession, law students, paralegals, and all litigants with equal access to legal print and online resources.

The library was established under Texas Local Government Code, Section 323.01, by the Kaufman County Commissioners' Court as the governing entity. It is funded with civil court filing fees.

The Kaufman County Law Library is not responsible for possible inaccuracies of legal information located on this site or elsewhere.

Legal Assistance vs. Legal Advice

By law, no member of the Law Library staff may give any patron legal advice. Accordingly, staff may not interpret legal materials for patrons, advise them as to how the law might apply to their particular situation, or assist them in preparing and filling out legal forms of any kind. Staff can provide patrons legal assistance by directing them to topical print materials, sections, and subject headings that might be helpful in answering a particular question.
