International Judicial Monitor

Simon Fodden at Slaw, the cooperative Canadian blawg, published a post about an international legal resource I had not heard of: International Judicial Monitor.

Published by the American Society of International Law and the International Judicial Academy, it describes itself as an "international law resource for judiciaries, justice sector professionals, and the rule of law community around the world."

It offers commentary, significant judicial developments, profiles of prominent jurists, etc.

At the Supreme Court of Canada, we have found a few other current awareness sources useful for following international legal developments and news:
  • Global Legal Monitor, an electronic publication of the Law Library of Congress. The Monitor summarizes legal developments from around the world, with selections made based on official national legal publications, and various press sources.
  • JURIST, the news website run by the School of Law at the University of Pittsburgh
  • BILD - Bulletin of International Legal Developments, from the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, covering "developments in the fields of public international law, national laws, conflict of laws, European law and human rights."
