The Global Legal Information Network (GLIN) is a searchable database of official texts of laws, regulations, judicial decisions, legislative records, and other complementary legal sources contributed by governmental agencies and international organizations worldwide. Full text documents in original languages are available for many countries and institutions. A complete list of the countries and institutions that have granted permission to provide full text access to their laws/legal materials is accessible at: http://www.glin.gov/publicFullTextJurisdictions.action. Each document is accompanied by a summary in English and, in many cases in additional languages, plus subject terms selected from the multilingual index to GLIN.
Detailed information is available at the Database Contents page.
