Founded in 1803, the Social Law Library is a member-managed, dues-supported legal research institution. The Library provides research materials, training and services to the judiciary and practicing bar of Massachusetts.
The Social Law Library is the Commonwealth’s premier law library relied on by all of Massachusetts government. There is a truly remarkable level of governmental reliance on resources of this “private” institution. The service the Library has historically provided to the Supreme Judicial Court is well known. Today, it provides services to all Massachusetts judges in every corner of the Commonwealth. Documented usage statistics demonstrate that not only the judiciary, but also the legislative and executive branches use the Social Law Library on a daily basis.
