Finding the law: Boards in the U.S. Code

A collection of general and permanent laws relating to boards, passed by the United States Congress, are organized by subject matter arrangements in the United States Code (U.S.C.; this label examines boards topics), to make them easy to use (usually, organized by legal areas into Titles, Chapters and Sections). The platform provides introductory material to the U.S. Code, and cross references to case law. View the U.S. Code’s table of contents here.
