Legal Websites: Houston Public Library Law Databases

While the Fred Parks Law Library has an extensive collection of over 90 databases for students and patrons to take advantage of, it’s important to be aware of other resources that are available.  This may become especially relevant upon graduation when access to certain resources provided by the library may be limited. One such freely available resource is the selection of law related databases provided by the Houston Public Library. The collection includes resources you may already be familiar with through the Fred Parks Law Library such as Congressional Universe. It also includes practitioner oriented databases such as Gale Legal Forms. All one needs to access them is a library card through the Houston Public Library. Here is information on obtaining one.
