AskNow's law librarian service lets you ask questions and get answers, in real time, right here on the Internet, from live law librarians throughout California. The AskNow law librarian service is available :

Monday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. & 6p.m.- 8 p.m.
Tuesday-Thursday 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Live Reference staff are not available on Holidays

When you click on the AskNow button on this page, the law librarian who answers your question may or may not be a librarian at your local law library. When the law librarian cannot answer your question by referring to free Internet resources, you may be referred to your local public law library. The law librarian expert service is not available at all times. If a law librarian is not available we recommend that you call or visit your county public law library.

It is unlawful for librarians to interpret legal information or advise an individual how the law might apply to one's situation. This kind of service would constitute the unauthorized practice of law. If you need further help to solve your legal problem, we recommend that you consult an attorney.
