People's Law of Iowa

The People’s Law Library of Iowa is a new legal resource website providing easy to understand information on topics related to Iowa’s laws. The People's Law Library of Iowa can be a resource for librarians to provide patrons when they have legal questions.

The website includes information on legal topics such as consumer law, family law, and landlord/tenant law, as well as guidance on researching legal issues, a glossary of more than 100 legal terms, and more.

Funding for the People’s Law Library of Iowa came from a portion of the State Library’s allotment from the American Rescue Plan Act. The University of Iowa Law Library spearheaded the effort to develop content for the website, with the State Library providing administrative support and contracting for the website design services.

An agreement has been made to extend the partnership between the State Library and University of Iowa Law Library, and additional legal topics will be added to the website in the future.
