New Database! Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals

The PCL now has access electronically to the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals, accessible from the library’s home page or our online services page (in the left column).

The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals  provides access to legal literature worldwide, covering all forms of foreign (non-Anglo-American) law.  This includes comparative law and legal systems, such as Islamic law; socialist law; public and private international law; and transnational commercial law.

The data is not limited by country of publication, but rather type of publication.  Thus, while publications concerning British and American law are not included, British and American publications concerning foreign law are included.
The types of documents covered include journal articles, congress reports, essay collections, yearbooks, and book reviews.  The database encompasses all languages.  Materials in Greek, Cyrillic, and East Asian vernacular are Romanized according to Library of Congress standards.  Arabic and Hebrew titles are translated into English or French.

Coverage begins with 1985.

The search results will link you to a copy of the article if it is available from WFU libraries.  Otherwise, take note of the citation information and submit an interlibrary loan request and we’ll do our best to get you a copy of the article.  If you have any questions about the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals, please see a reference librarian.
