Hawai`i Legal Research: About

Links to online legal resources for researching Hawaii laws.

Hawai`i Legal Research

Originally created to aid the researcher seeking links to current Hawai`i laws, this guide has grown to include historical information.  Hawai`i is a relatively new state (1959) and researchers frequently need to refer to materials prior to statehood.  Wherever possible I have included links to material that has been digitized and can be found online.  For the most part, those resources are proprietary in that the University of Hawai`i libraries pay to access the content for its users.  Often members of the general public can access these proprietary resources by coming to the library and using a public access computer.  Remote access is only available to those with valid UH Mānoa logins.
