King County Law Library offers remote access to Nolo, the leading DIY legal database

The King County Law Library is now offering free remote access to the Nolo Press database for all King County residents via their website,

Nolo Press has long been a leader in the consumer-friendly legal information market, offering legal self-help books and forms geared to the most common legal tasks.  With resources like “The Quick & Legal Will Book,” “Beat Your Ticket,” “Neighbor Law,” and “Credit Repair,” the Nolo books present complex legal information in a plain English, user-friendly format.

“Prior to the physical closure of the law library due to the pandemic, a large percentage of our walk-in patrons were doing their own legal work and we could point them to relevant print books and forms they could use in the library,” King County Law Library Executive Director Barbara Engstrom said. “Now that we have acquired the Nolo database, our staff can show resources specifically geared to folks doing DIY legal work without having to come into the library.”
