International Legal Research: National Legislation

This Guide covers essential print and electronic resources for researching international and foreign law.

National Implementing Legislation

Because directives require the enactment of national implementing legislation in the member countries, the EU researcher may also find it necessary to locate the national laws of other countries. The N-Lex website allows one to track such implementing legislation.  

Lexis has a database of National Provisions Implementing Directives: Legal > Find Laws by Country or Region > European Union > Legislation & Regulations > EUR-Lex EU Law Database: National Provisions Implementing Directives.  



The Foreign Law Guide (FLG) is, of course, another place to turn for such foreign (non US) legal research. The FLG also has an excellent, although somewhat dated, chapter on European Union.
