Linking template[edit]

I'm working on a template, {{USStat}}, which would link to the specific page of the Statutes at Large. —Markles 15:49, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

  • It now works for volumes < 18 !—Markles 13:05, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
    • I just tried it out. It works! Great work! --Coolcaesar 16:02, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Transcription project[edit]

Wikisource is now transcribing the first volume; see s:United States Statutes at Large/Volume 1. John Vandenberg (chat) 10:40, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

UK Statutes at Large[edit]

The UK also has Statutes at Large, I think; certainly GB did in 1765. Statutes at Large 1765 (which should have applied to the Colonies), or at least the Calendar Act thereof, have been found in Google Books.

This page needs a link to British Statutes at Large and to HMG's Statute Law Database.

The Statutes at Large page itself should not redirect here, but instead should have links to all Statutes at Large, in Wikipedia and otherwise.

The presumption that places outside the USA have no real existence is a continuing source of offence.

See now Statutes at Large where I have listed the two/three publications you are referring to: Ruffhead, Ruffhead and Runnington, Pickering. James500 (talk) 23:48, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Proposed Changes[edit]

1 USC 112 says that, "The United States Statutes at Large shall be legal evidence of laws..." but does not appear to address priority. (External link to Cornell's LII: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode01/usc_sec_01_00000112----000-.html)

Should the last paragraph of the article be changed, or is there a resource that speaks directly to this issue?
