About this Collection
The Foreign Law Web Archive is a collection of foreign legal materials, including gazettes and judicial sites. Many foreign legal materials are now posted online, with some jurisdictions dispensing with a print publication entirely. Certain jurisdictions' legal materials are challenging to acquire or considered at-risk of disappearing from the web. The Law Library of Congress is now archiving the legal materials of selected jurisdictions to ensure we can continue to provide comprehensive and timely access to foreign legal materials to researchers from across the world.
Collection Period: June 2016 to present (this is an ongoing archive).
Frequency of Collection: The majority of sites in the collection were targeted for capture quarterly, with some targeted for capture weekly or monthly.

Acquisition Information: Sites have been added incrementally since the project began and will continue to be added as they are identified.
