California Legislative History Research

Law Revision Commission Reports

The recommendations of the California Law Revision Commission are often cited in the annotated statutory codes. The citations will be to the Commission's publication titled "Reports, Recommendations, and Studies." A print version of this publication can be found in the Law Library's California section on the Main Floor. It can also be accessed electronically in PDF on the Commission's online Publication Catalog. From this webpage, you can browse a list of the various Commission reports, recommendations, and studies published since 1957 and link to the full text of any one of them.

Keep in mind that only the recommendations (as opposed to the annual reports and studies) can serve as evidence of legislative intent.
