State Statutes Research

Currently all of the Library’s state codes (besides California) are in storage. On Westlaw you can retrieve the annotated and unannotated statutes from all 50 states. With the Law School Tab as your homepage, you can quickly search by citation using the Find by Citation box on the left. A list of Statutes By State is an option in the Statutes category, just enter your search terms and click the box of the state you are searching. Annotated state codes from every state are also available on Lexis; enter your citation in the Research Tasks | Type a Citation box, or use the Legal | States Legal | U.S. tabs. If you want to search unannotated codes in Lexis, the search format is: unanno ( educational w/10 tax! ). To look at states codes in paper you can either: 1) visit the San Francisco Law Library at 401 Van Ness (at McAllister) on the 4th floor, or 2) page up to 3 volumes from our stored state codes collection using the paging form available at the Circulation Desk in the First Floor Library.
