Abstract

This, the third of six articles, details the various ways of locating statutes and regulations by citation or popular name. All of the major variations of citation formats are identified and discussed, as are the most reliable methods of locating statutes when the researcher has only the popular name of a statue or act (i.e. the USA Patriot Act).

Keywords: Legal Research, statutes, regulation
