Health Law

About

When a law is passed, it is first published as a Session Law.  Eventually it is reworked into a subject arrangement of the law which is called a code.  Most researchers will make use of an annotated version of the code which often cites to case law, secondary sources, other relevant statutes and regulations that will help you with your research.

Tips for Locating Statutes

  • Use an index to search by subject
  • Use the popular name table to search by name
  • Use the conversion table to search by public law number
  • Retrieve by citation
  • Search online using Terms & Connectors or Natural Language
