Add This to Your International Research Toolbox – Legal Reports from the Law Library of Congress

GlobeThe Law Library of Congress, which is a part of the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., is regularly asked to produce reports for members of Congress on various legal topics. These reports are reminiscent of Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports, but generally shorter. The Law Library of Congress makes their legal reports available to the public, and indexes them by topic. The reports generally have an international focus, examining the laws of a particular jurisdiction like Israel for example, or comparing the laws in several countries, like several EU states. Recent topics have included airport noise regulation, cryptocurrency around the world, fake news, sovereign immunity, and Miranda warning equivalents.
