Free Internet resources:

Foreign government web sites usually provide legislation in the local language, and you may find English translations of significant legislation either at the legislative body/parliamentary site, or at the site of a department or  ministry with responsibility for the area of law that interests you.

Subscription resources:

Foreign Law Guide (UM Law only)  Covering about 190 jurisdictions, the Foreign Law guide allows searching as well as browsing by country or topic.

Lexis/Lexis Advance and Westlaw/Westlaw Next (UM Law only) provide legislation from a number of countries. Most foreign materials have not yet migrated to Lexis Advance; you may need to access from Lexis Advance (use the red Research tab near the upper left of the screen) to access these materials.

For information on sources by individual country or by topic, see the "Country/Topical Resources" tab in this Guide.
