Does anyone know how to cite this in a German text? And more precisely: what does "Pub.L" stand for (public law?), and what is meant by "Stat." (statement?); how am I supposed to present this in a German text, unchanged? I assume "Title" refers to the titles of the U.S.C., no? Thanks for your suggestions!

Explanation:
Pub.L - Public Law
Sat. - (United States Statutes) at Large

Hier gibt es meiner Ansicht nach nichts zu übersetzen, da es sich um eine Quellenangabe (vgl. *referenced* as Public Law ..., s.u.) handelt.

Quellen

Acts of Congress are designated as either "Public Laws", relating to the general public, or "Private Laws", relating to specific individuals. Since 1957 ***all Acts of Congress have been designated as "Public Law X-Y"*** or "Private Law X-Y", where X is the number of the Congress and Y is a number sequentially assigned to each act. [1]

Thank you very much. I'd never thought of dropping the original entirely but my customer needed German hints to what is meant by all this.
