After hours access

Who can apply

Active members of the Oregon State Bar

How to apply

Contact the trial court administrator's office for the form. When you get it, make sure to select the Law Library (and any other bypass options you wish). Return the form to the courthouse for processing.

What happens after you apply

All departments that you are requesting access to need to approve your request. Once you have been approved, you will be issued a mag card. This card will allow you access to the Law Library after hours.

What to do when you access the Law Library after hours

There will be a sign in sheet on the counter. Please fill out this as completely as possible, including time in and out. If you use any books, please leave them in one of the designated areas. If you print or make copies, standard charge rates apply ($0.10 per sheet of paper); you can use the charge book, fill out an IOU form, or place your money with a quick note on the table.
