Law Library of Congress Interview With Sarah Bandini, Foreign Law Intern

In Custodia Legis, the blog of the Law Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., has posted an interview with Sarah Bandini, a foreign law intern in the institution's Global Legal Research Directorate. She is originally from Ravenna, Italy.

It is part of an ongoing series of interviews about the kinds of work staff do behind the scenes:

"How would you describe your job to other people?
At the Law Library, I carry out research for the Global Legal Research Directorate (...) My role consists of assisting in conducting comparative studies and researching the law of the European Union (EU) in response to requests from Congress, federal agencies, the courts, and private patrons. I write articles for the Global Legal Monitor on new regulations and the latest legislative proposals from the EU and EU member states. My contributions will hopefully enhance the knowledge of the members of Congress and the public in general (...)"

"What is the most interesting fact you have learned about the Law Library of Congress?
I recently came across an interesting tidbit that I would like to share. The Library of Congress does not just host millions of books, but it also finds itself as the focal point of a narrative in one. In Margaret Truman’s Murder at the Library of Congress, the Library transforms into a hub of mysteries and homicides that bury terrible secrets."

The Law Library of Congress is the world’s largest law library, with a collection of almost 3 million volumes from all ages of history and virtually every jurisdiction in the world.
