About this Collection
This collection features research reports and other publications on a wide range of legal topics prepared by the Law Library of Congress in response to requests or recurring interest from Congress and other federal government entities on issues concerning foreign, comparative, and international law (FCIL).
In addition to current research products on FCIL topics, this collection includes historical legal reports that have been previously unavailable to the public. The reports contain comparative analysis of foreign and international law from the period of the 1940s to the present. These digitized and born-digital historical reports will be released in phases. The Comprehensive Index of Legal Reports holds all of our current reports. The information provided reflects research undertaken as of the date of writing, which has not been updated unless specifically noted, but will nonetheless be of historical interest. In processing historical reports for publication, the Law Library has made a good-faith effort to ensure that only final versions of those reports are included in this collection.
