Law Librarian Disclaimers


Law Librarian Disclaimers: Please use disclaimers and use them with great feeling whether you are responding to a patron’s legal reference question or preparing a handout, a Power Point, or a web page on legal reference materials. Disclaimers come in all shapes and sizes. We’ll link later to a variety of them, but in a pinch, use this one:

It is against state law for library staff members to engage in any conduct that might constitute the unauthorized practice of law (ORS 9.160, 9.166 and 9.21). They may not interpret statutes, cases and regulations, or advise patrons regarding their legal rights. They may, however, assist patrons in locating materials or links that would aid in individual research.”
