How does Casemaker stay Current?
Casemaker's headquarters in Charlottesville, VA has ten editors with over 275 years of experience in legal publishing. Data for State and Federal acts are obtained daily. The Acts are analyzed by a state editor, classified and effective dates determined. Then they are processed into the code which includes amendments, enactments, repeals and re-numberings. The code is then published. Data is converted and delivered to the editorial team within 24 hours of receipt and the Acts are published in Casemaker within 24 hours of receipt. Statutes are updated and published within 7 business days of receipt of the Acts. This means statutes are kept up-to-date throughout sessions; statutes have added editorial value such as linked history lines, effective dates for all states, sections set out twice for postponed amendments, and retention of repeals in most states for historical reference; and materials are quality checked for completeness and accuracy.
The blue navigation bar on the homepage provides you with an Archive. Clicking Archive will allow you to select Administrative Code, Session Laws, or Statutes then the jurisdiction you wish to see the archives for. This is a great way to see previous versions of code and statutes or older session laws. It also helps you see statutes that may have been repealed.
