When this occurs, researching the Legislature's intent in enacting a particular law often becomes necessary.  In this class, learn how to research a California statute and gain resources to engage in basic legislative intent research yourself.

This course covers:

  • Legislative history research: what it can do, why you need it
  • The process of researching legislative history
  • Key terms and the different types of documents that make up legislative history
  • Determining the particular session law ("chapter") or bill number to research
