Internet links on comparative law in general:
- General resources on comparative law (such as, country guides, link lists) are provided by a number of universities. Very useful are the following: Comparative Law Gateway (Tulane), Global Research Tools (NYU), Legal Information Institute (Cornell), JURIST World Law (Pittsburgh), Foreign Law Research (IALS London) and (a bit more narrow) Foreign Law Translations (Texas). There are also a number of other organisations which provide such guidance, the main ones being World Legal Information Institute, and World Law Guide.
- More specific resources are also widely available. For (English-language) journals that deal with comparative law see the Washington & Lee Law Journals list (click on “comparative law”). For working papers see the SSRN Comparative Law eJournal. The main association for matters of comparative law is the International Academy of Comparative Law. Good blogs related to topics of comparative law are Sean Patrick Donlan's Juris Diversitas Blog and Larry Cata Backer's Blog.
