United States Code Annotated® (USCA) comprises a comprehensive research tool for anyone desiring instant access to the United States code sections and constitution. This multivolume set is extensively annotated with legislative history materials that are relevant to specific code sections. These materials include: enacting and amending laws, committee reports, congressional journals, and bill tracking information. 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. Comprehensive case annotations and notes of federal judicial decisions provide interpretation and application of the law, expanding your research beyond the code sections. 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. Experienced attorney-editors curate indexes utilizing a controlled vocabulary, organizing references around legal concepts, and reflecting code language faithfully. Indexers make sure to include colloquial and jurisdiction-specific terms. Together with accurate and consistent internal cross-references, you can easily locate the relevant code section without needing to page through the entire set.

This product comes with prompt update services to keep you informed of the most recent changes in the law and the latest judicial interpretations. Cumulative pocket part inserts and supplementary pamphlets are shipped semiannually, keeping the volumes up to date. Recompiled editions are typically shipped four times a year, with roughly 36 volumes shipped annually.
