Cornell Legal Information Institute Releases Online CFR
May 9, 2012 Leave a comment
This new online edition of the CFR is the result of an unprecedented two-year collaboration between the Government Printing Office (GPO), the Legal Information Institute at Cornell Law School (LII), and the Cornell Law Library.
The LII’s edition of the CFR has the same search and navigation features as its edition of the United States Code. The CFR project implemented features that have been requested by government regulators, corporate counsel, and law librarians, including cross-references both within the CFR and to relevant parts of the United States Code.
In addition to its improved navigation, the LII CFR also contains links to relevant statutory authority and to rulemaking dockets for pending regulations that may affect the section the user is viewing.
The LII edition is updated concurrently with updates to the GPO’s Federal Digital System data on which it is based, with links from each page to the Office of the Federal Register’s e-CFR edition for more recent updates.
