Commercial Law and the Uniform Code
This research guide is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather will list some of the major sources of law in the area and a variety of tools for the researcher to use when confronted with a commercial law issue.
This text gives citations to the adopting state codes. Additionally, the Legal Information Institute at Cornell University publishes a Uniform Commercial Code Locator that links to individual state statutes corresponding to Articles of the UCC. The text of the UCC itself can be found in Uniform Laws Annotated and online at Cornell University.
The State of Washington's adaptation of the UCC is located in the Revised Code of Washington, RCW Title 62A.
