Law Library of Congress Redesigns Website

As part of its 175th anniversary, the Law Library of Congress in Washington has released its newly designed website.

It includes many international legal resources such as:
  • Global Legal Information Network: "a public database of official texts of laws, regulations, judicial decisions, and other complementary legal sources contributed by governmental agencies and international organizations."
  • Multinational Collections Database: "lists items which reprint the laws and regulations of international jurisdictions on a particular legal topic, comparative in nature."
  • Global Legal Monitor: "intended for those who have an interest in legal developments from around the world."
  • Foreign and International Law: "the Law Library of Congress has prepared a guide to reference sources, compilations, citations guides, periodicals (indexes and databases), dictionaries, web resources, free public web sites, subscription-based services, subject-specific web sites, and country overviews." So far, the Library has prepared guides for Australia, Brazil, the UK, China, India, Lebanon, and Sweden.
