GlobaLex – a portal to international, foreign and comparative law materials

If you are struggling with your research why don’t you look up GlobaLex – a free legal information portal dedicated to disseminating high quality international, foreign, and comparative law research materials.  Published by the Hauser Global Law School Program at NYU School of Law, GlobaLex contains “guides and articles  written by scholars well known in their respective fields and are recommended as a legal resource by universities, library schools, and legal training courses”.

The research tools in GlobaLex are regularly updated (around 4-6 new or updated articles are added each month) and continually expanded to cover international law topics, countries and legal systems. It is also cited as a source in HeinOnline’s World Constitutions online library (Roznovschi 2014).

If you are interested and would like to know more about GlobaLex read, Roznovschi, M. (2014) ‘The 10th Anniversary of GlobaLex: A Portal Dedicated to Foreign, Comparative and International Law Research‘, Legal Information Management, 14(4), pp. 300-303.
