How can I look up legal codes myself?

QUESTION:

As a startup, we try hard to minimize our lawyer’s time to save money.  We usually spend time reviewing the legal docs in advance, so we don’t have to ask too many  questions.  My problem is when I come across a phrase like: “pursuant to section 141(f) of the Delaware General Corporation Law”.   Where can I find out what this is about?

Here is a great resource we found that seems to cover Federal, State & Local Governments:    http://law.justia.com/index.html

For example, regarding the reference to section 141(f) mentioned as above, I clicked on “Delaware” on this site, then clicked on “Delaware Codes”, which sent me to http://law.justia.com/delaware/codes/

Then at the bottom of the page, it has a link to the Delaware Code site, clicking on which sent me to http://delcode.delaware.gov/

Then, I clicked on Title 8 – Corporations, and then clicked on Chapter 1. General Corporation Law.

Then I clicked on the link to Subchapter IV, which sent me to http://delcode.delaware.gov/title8/c001/sc04/index.shtml

It opens up the section 141, including 141(f).  Pretty handy, eh?
