This formed the basis of the Chinese criminal code, which was then replaced by the Great Qing Legal Code, which was in turn abolished in 1912 following the Xinhai Revolution and the establishment of the Republic of China.
The new laws of the Republic of China were inspired by the German codified work, the Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch.
In the United States, acts of Congress, such as federal statutes, are published chronologically in the order in which they become law – often by being signed by the President, on an individual basis in official pamphlets called "slip laws", and are grouped together in official bound book form, also chronologically, as "session laws".
The "session law" publication for Federal statutes is called the United States Statutes at Large.
Further, portions of some Congressional acts, such as the provisions for the effective dates of amendments to codified laws, are themselves not codified at all.
These statutes may be found by referring to the acts as published in "slip law" and "session law" form.
A notable early example were the Statutes of Lithuania, in the 16th century.
