Thomson Reuters editors invest thousands of hours in every annotated code to ensure that the text, index and features are accurate and up-to-date. This multivolume set is extensively annotated with materials relevant to the specific statute sections with which they appear, including enacting and amending laws, comprehensive case annotations and notes of state and federal judicial decisions providing interpretation and application of the law and amendment notes describing with particularity the changes made to the text of the statute by an amending law. Additional annotative features that point to other relevant law, scholarly works, and crucial material to clarify legislative intent are also provided. These research aids make every volume reliable and easy to use.
Detailed general indexes and an exclusive popular name table help you locate statutes with pinpoint accuracy.
