We are excited to announce the release of both a new edition and a database version of Richard Leiter's award-winning publication, National Survey of State Laws.

The seventh edition of National Survey of State Laws provides an overall view of some of the most sought-after and controversial legal topics in the United States. The book and the database are presented in chart format, and both versions allow users to make state-by-state comparisons of current state laws. Use the database version of this title to search the content and metadata, or to browse laws either by category or by topic. Compare only certain states' laws, or view laws as they appear in the current edition compared to the two previous editions.
