Streamline state law research

Practical Law state law resources are organized by both topic and state. Whether you need to research the law in your state or others, these state law resources help you find what you’re looking for with very minimal effort.

Each guide is organized by topic, which may contain links to primary sources, government websites, and other Practical Law resources. You can compare law across multiple states using the State Comparison Tool, in which you can select from a list of topic-specific questions and the jurisdictions you want to compare.

For example, when searching hiring requirements under Labor and Employment law, select the criteria you’re interested in to easily see how the laws in one jurisdiction compare to those of another. This allows attorneys to easily review the differences in state laws. State law resources are useful when attorneys need to modify jurisdiction-neutral standard documents for use in a specific state or in multiple states.
