Finding California Primary Law

Searching for Regulations

If you are using LexisNexis Academic, you can enter your citation as you would enter a statutory citation. For example, if you are looking for 22 C.C.R. § 98002, you can enter "22 CCR 98002" and run your search. Once the section is retrieved, you can view surrounding C.C.R. sections by using the Next and Previous arrows and the hyperlinked Table of Contents.

At the end of each C.C.R. section are "Authority cited" and "Reference" notes that provide citations to related California statutory code sections ("Authority cited" notes indicate the statutory sections that authorized the regulation). If you are beginning your research with a regulation, the statutory references for that regulation can be useful in locating the statutory code section(s) that pertain to your research topic.
