Revised Code, Ohio

The codified law of the state, often abbreviated ORC or RC. Commercial versions of the Code, published privately, include annotations and other reference material. Codified law is sometimes informally referred to as "permanent law." The Revised Code is divided into titles, chapters, sections, and supplemental sections. Each subdivision of the Revised Code indicates increasing specificity regarding the topic addressed. For example, Title 29 of the Revised Code addresses criminal law generally, and each chapter and its sections provide increasing levels of detail. You can determine the title, chapter, and section (and, if relevant, supplemental section) of the Revised Code from the number: R.C. 101.21 ? Title 1, Chapter 1, Section 21 R.C. 3301.0720 ? Title 33, Chapter 1, Section 7, and Supplemental Section 20.
