Statutory Research – Review – Monday, August 26 at 9:30 AM

Two ways to publish federal and state statutes (find below  digital, free-of charge examples)

Assessing the currency of the statutory text: Use the fee-based databases (westlaw, lexis, etc)

  • 47 U.S.C.A. § 1305 (read the clear information under currentness)
  • McKinney’s Real Property Law § 226-b (not so clear)

Statutory research requires:

  1. finding the statute
  2. finding the agency rule that further applies the statute
  3. finding cases which interpret the statute
