The Foreign Law Web Archive

The Foreign Law Web Archive is a collection of foreign legal materials. Included are official gazettes and judicial websites. An official Gazette is a government publication that generally contains the first version of the text of legislation, regulations, rules, legal notices, treaties, and court cases for foreign countries. Many foreign legal materials are now posted online, with some jurisdictions dispensing with a print publication entirely. Certain jurisdictions’ legal materials are challenging to acquire or considered at-risk of disappearing from the web.
