Q: I need to find the legislative history for a particular law.
Answered by: Melanie Maksin

Published legislative histories may be available from:

  • Orbis (Yale Library catalog) or MORRIS (Yale Law Library catalog). Keyword search: "legislative history" and keyword(s) related to the law.

Not every enacted law has a published legislative history. You may need to compile one yourself, using the resources highlighted in this guide.

See also: Yale Law Library’s Legislative History guide; some of the sources listed will be available to Yale Law School affiliates only. Contact Yale University Library's government documents librarian to find out which sources are available to you.
