Minnesota State Law Library
The Minnesota State Law Library maintains print briefs for published cases of the Minnesota Supreme Court and Minnesota Court of Appeals. Briefs may also be available electronically through our Briefs archive or through MACS. Contact Ask a Librarian if you would like to request electronic briefs or need assistance locating briefs.
The Minnesota State Law Library maintains print copies of Minneapolis and St. Paul city ordinances. Other city ordinances are available online or in the city clerk's office for that city.
You may also access periodicals in the library through:
Minnesota's constitutional convention resulted in two versions of the state constitution. More information about the convention and resulting documents can be found on the Minnesota Historical Society website.
In our positions as librarians, not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file) or legal opinions (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts). To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law. Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, more research is often required to find a complete and correct answer. For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.
