U.S. Law Sources

Laws passed by Congress (also referred to as Public or Private Laws) are published in the order passed in a series called Statutes at Large.  After the law is passed, it is incorporated into the U.S. Code.  If your research project involves discovering legislative intent, you will want to check out our Guide to Congressional Publications as well.  The UCB Law Library has additional resources on finding and interpreting the law.
