The District of Columbia Courts have two libraries: the D.C. Court of Appeals (DCCA) Library, located at the Historic Courthouse (Court of Appeals), is not open to the public but their librarian is available via email for reference help, and the D.C. Superior Court Library, located at the Moultrie Courthouse, is open to the public, but is currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The libraries offer the following resources to assist the public with legal research.

Legal Resources

The libraries have compiled links to local and federal resources you may find helpful while navigating our courts system. Included are links to D.C. law, the D.C. Code, regulations (local and federal), court case locaters, reference materials and links to other local resource agencies. These external resources can assist you in finding information whether you're an attorney or a party without an attorney.

If you need help with these resources, please contact the following:

DC Superior Court Library – library [at]
DC Court of Appeals LIbrary – lmoorer [at]
