K Class
The K classification schedule is the only schedule which has not been completed by the Library of Congress.

Although the schedule is close to being finished, ancient and theocratic legal systems remain to be done.

In cases where the appropriate K class is incomplete, an outline for the K class forms the basis of the call number. Only the initial letters for the appropriate legal system are used, which results in numbers such as: KKC.R723 or KE.S54.

Check LC's site for information on the status of KB subclasses.

The ecclesiastical law of particular countries is classed with the law of that country. For questions about dates within K classification call numbers see Dates in call numbers.
