What's in this guide

Welcome to the Foreign and Comparative Law Research Guide.  Foreign and comparative legal research involves researching foreign countries' domestic laws and legal systems.  There are a number of challenges: different legal traditions, the lack of publically accessible sources of primary law, the lack of access to some foreign fee-based databases, language barriers, etc.  This guide was prepared to help researchers with foreign and comparative legal research by highlighting resources available to  Osgoode Hall Law School Library patrons, both through the library and by means of the Internet.  This guide suggests background and reference sources with which to begin research.
