Legislative History Research

Librarian Andy Lang will cover administrative law research and legislative history research in class on September 12th, during regularly scheduled class times. This page contains information about researching legislative history. Understanding the law-making process through legislative history research can provide valuable insight into legislative intent, especially where the meaning of a statute is unclear.

Links to the Library's Legislative History tutorial series are included below and a link to the legislative history research guide is available on the right.
