Forsyth County Law Library

The Forsyth County Law Library welcomes you to its website. The Library serves as a resource to support the legal research needs of the Forsyth County Judiciary, Attorneys, Paralegals, Pro Se Litigants, and the general public.  The emphasis is on Georgia and Federal materials and is oriented to the needs of the trial court.  It is a reference Library only and the removal of books from the premises is prohibited.

The Law Library is a part of the Forsyth County Superior Court Administration and was created and is governed by title 36, chapter 15 of the State statutes.  Pursuant to State legislation, a Board of Trustees is responsible for making all rules, regulations, and decisions governing the Law Library.  The Board consists of the Chief Judges of the Superior and State courts, the Solicitor General, Clerk of Courts, Probate Judge, and two local Attorneys.

The Library staff provides assistance in finding appropriate materials and suggesting possible resources.  However, the staff may not give advice or interpretation about specific legal situations, which may constitute the unauthorized practice of law.

The Library material is contained in print and the online research service, WestlawNext, which provides easy access to West’s vast collection of statutes, case law materials and other legal resources. Copy costs are $.25 a page.

The Library is located in downtown Cumming at 101 East Courthouse Square, Suite 1030A, Cumming, GA 30040, and is open Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except on county holidays.
