Laws for each session of the Indiana General Assembly were published. Between the 19th and 36th sessions (1834-1851) the general laws and the local laws were published separately. Sessions were held annually until 1857 and biannually on odd years since 1857.

Revised Laws or Statutes combine previous session laws, amendments, and repeals into one accessible code.
