Email Reference Question Form

UW School of Law students, other UW faculty and students, and members of the public are invited to use this form to submit questions to the Gallagher Law Library reference librarians. We read and reply to questions submitted via this form when the Reference Office is open.

We will suggest sources that you will find useful for conducting your research. For instance, if you say you want to locate articles on a certain topic, we will suggest an appropriate index and perhaps some search terms, but we will not prepare a bibliography for you.

We cannot provide legal advice. We cannot tell you what "the law" is or how courts have interpreted the law.

Some questions are too complex to answer via email. We will let you know if your question requires a visit to the Law Library. You may review our reference service policies for more information.
