Ind. Law - The Indiana Law Blog's Legislative Research Shortcuts
The ILB has just updated its very useful research tool, The Indiana Law Blog's Legislative Research Shortcuts.
New features include links providing access to earlier editions of the Indiana Code, specifically the 2009, 2010 and 2011 editions. This allows the researcher to see what a section or chapter said before it was amended or repealed.
Another resource created by the ILB for readers is the searchable Indiana Constitution. Unlike other online versions, which provide only one Article at a time, the ILB's Indiana Constitution is a pdf document that may be searched across Articles (this feature may not work on a tablet computer, however). Using the search tool, one can immediately determine, for instance, that the pronoun "his" appears 41 times in the Constitution, while the pronoun "her" does not appear.
