According to the APA Style Blog, APA Style for citing legal citations is based on The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (18th ed., 2005; www.legalbluebook.com); more info can be found in the Publication Manual of the APA Appendix 7.1: References to Legal Materials (pp. 216–224). Check out Westfield State University's "Citing Legal Material" page which offers a more in-depth explanation with some examples.

For information on how to specific state laws, consult Cornell's Legal Information Institute (LII) website here. A sample citation for 'Vermont' would look something like this:

Vt. Stat. Ann. tit. 8, § 4089e (1998).
