Foreign Law Guide
This work endeavors to provide the lawyer or legal researcher with relevant information on sources of foreign law, including complete bibliographic citations to legislation, the existence of English translations whenever possible, indications of currentness of the legal materials listed, and, finally, selected references to secondary sources in English. Thus, this is primarily a guide to official sources and official versions with references, when appropriate, to full texts of legislation and English translations of codes, laws and relevant material published separately. These translations may be official or unofficial, published as a monograph or in major comparative treatments or in a series or even in journals. The editors have sought to concentrate on current books and materials available in the trade or in normal avenues of document distribution. A second-tier source consists of digests or descriptions of legislation or codes or legal procedures and requirements that fall short of full and reliable translations.
