Disclaimer & Confidentiality
The law library reference department's ability to provide assistance is limited to helping locate sources of information. No member of the law library staff can assist in the interpretation of legal materials. Materials referenced by the law librarian are intended as sources of information and are not warranted to supply definitive answers. As there are many resources available for locating legal information, it is recommended that first time law library users refer to a basic text on legal research to get an overall view of the types of legal materials available and how to access and interpret them. People representing themselves are expected to do their work on their own. If you have legal questions, we recommend you consult an attorney. If you need legal advice, please go to the Wyoming Bar Assocation to search for an attorney.
