The General Statutes of North Carolina is the current code of all permanent North Carolina law of a general nature.  It was adopted in 1943 and is updated annually by the laws passed during each legislative session.  A new edition of the statutes is published biennially and kept up to date in between editions by interim supplements.  Superseded (or outdated) statutes and codes are available for researching how a statute read in earlier years.

Note: The Legislative Library's collection is incomplete. Several cumulative supplements and some pre-1943 code editions are missing.
