Introduction to Foreign Law

Welcome to the Warren E. Burger Library LibGuide for foreign law. Foreign law refers to the domestic law of a national jurisdiction (in this case, non-United States jurisdictions). You may also want to view our guide to Public International Law which is the law between and among countries and intergovernmental organizations, such as the United Nations:

This guide includes electronic, print, and free online resources. Electronic resources include those available on Westlaw, LexisNexis, free and subscription databases, web pages and computer assisted instruction.  Print resources include books, journals and other materials available from the Warren E. Burger Library.

This is intended as a starting point for your research; please contact the reference librarians for further help.
