Comprehensive Global Legal Research Guides

My favorite resource for international legal research (and not just because I’m an alumni) is NYU Law’s directory of Global Research Tools, published by the Hauser Global Law School Program.

The biggest contribution of the Program is GlobaLex, an impressive online directory of research guides from countries as diverse as Armenia, Bhutan, China, and others. Each of the guides gives the legal researcher the necessary background of the country, including history, basic law, links to secondary sources, and listings of NGOs, law school libraries, and legal publishers. These guides are written by foreign law experts. For an example guide, click here.
