November 10, 2010

From the Westlaw Reference AttorneysWestlaw tip: If you’re looking for a single starting point  to find legislative history, you can use Westlaw’s Arnold & Porter (A&P) Legislative History databases to retrieve comprehensive legislative history on Sarbanes-Oxley, the USA PATRIOT Act or other major federal acts in one simple search.

Under “U.S. Federal Materials” in the Westlaw directory, open the Arnold & Porter Collection folder for a comprehensive list of A&P databases including Arnold & Porter Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SAROX-LH). A Terms and Connecters search for CI(A&P) or just the word arnold in any A&P database will retrieve all documents available for a particular act.
