Other State Codes

There is an official print version of each state's code of laws. States also provide free versions of their current state codes on the Internet. Most are unofficial and un-annotated.

Several sites on the free web provide links to all state legislatures online, each of which provide access to their respective state codes. A few examples are Cornell University’s Legal Information Institute’s Listing by Jurisdiction; FindLaw’s U.S. Codes and Statutes page; and Fastcase’s Public Library of Law.


South Carolina colleges and universities and public libraries may provide access to annotated versions of South Carolina and all other state codes via subscription to academic and public-access versions of Westlaw and LexisNexis. Annotated versions of all state codes are available at the University of South Carolina through its subscription to LexisNexis Academic.
