If you're starting out with a Maryland statute or point of law and are trying to locate a similar statute in another jurisdiction, think about using the Martindale-Hubbell's Law Digest. As the name implies, the Digest provides an overview of the current law in each of the 50 states (as well as many international jurisdictions). So...rather than running searches in that other state's code, you'll find the same information much faster using the Digest. Better yet, once you've found your reference in the Digest, you can simply follow the references to find the full text in that state's code. (Thanks to Bob Levin for reminding of this useful resource).
