Civil Rights

Civil Rights topics cover a range of laws and issues, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 1983 litigation, employment discrimination and more. Complaints for civil rights violations by government agents must first be filed with the agency.


If your complaint is against a government agency or law enforcement, you will need to file a claim with the agency before filing a lawsuit. Find commonly-requested claims forms here.

Research Guides

The Law Librarians have created these research guides as an aid for those starting a legal research project. These guides recommend print and electronic resources that will help you find answers to your law-related questions. Many guides provide step-by-step information, as well as sample forms, for common legal procedures.


The Law Librarians created these pamphlets in response to frequently asked questions on subjects not appropriate for more substantive guides.
