Finding California Statutes, Regulations, and Related Cases

Searching by Name

Each enacted law is often referred to as an act, which may have an official or popular name (e.g., "Unruh Act," "Three Strikes and You're Out," etc.). Both of the print versions of the California statutory codes have a popular name table or index, which lists California acts alphabetically by name and provides citations to enable you to find them in the codes.

The "Popular Name Table" in the West version of the codes is located near the end of the index to the set (after the "Z" entries). A comparable table (called the "Popular Names Index") in the Deering version of the codes is located near the beginning of the index to that set.
