Statutes frequently contain ambiguous or unclear language. When this occurs, researching the Legislature’s intent in enacting a particular law often becomes necessary. In this webinar, learn how to research a California statute and gain resources to engage in basic legislative intent research yourself.

Topic includes:

– Legislative history research: what it can do and common use cases

– The process of researching legislative history

– Determining the particular session law (“chapter”) or bill number to research

– Key terms and the different types of documents that make up legislative history
