Since 1978, the Guam Law Library has been serving the legal information needs for the courts of the Guam, officials and employees of the Government of Guam, and the citizens of our community. By providing legal resources and research services, the Guam Law Library holds an essential role in guaranteeing the fair administration of justice.
The Guam Law Library is the largest and most complete legal research center on Guam serving the entire Western Pacific community. We are open from Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. In addition, 24-hour access to the library is available to members of the Guam Bar Association.
The Guam Law Library boasts a collection of more than 51,000 volumes in paper format, including federal statutory materials, legal encyclopedias, treatises, and periodicals. It is the depository for decisions of the Superior Court of Guam and opinions of the Supreme Court of Guam. The library’s collection includes legal resources from our Pacific Island neighbors, such as statutory materials from the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas and the Republic of Palau.
