Global Legal Information Network
Database of laws, regulations, and other complementary legal sources. The documents included in the database are contributed by the governments of the member nations from the original official texts which are deposited, by agreement of the members, in a server at the Library of Congress, sponsored by the Law Library of Congress. The basic elements of this database are: (1) full texts of the documents in the official language of the country of origin; (2) summaries or abstracts in English; and (3) an English thesaurus. GLIN data fields in the database include country/entity, GLIN thesaurus, title, date of issuance, date of publication, instrument class, instrument number, language, and others. The summaries or abstracts are linked electronically to the corresponding full texts. Access to the contents of the database is at two levels: guests have access to the summaries and citations to laws; members and associate members can access the full content of the database upon issuance of passwords. Inquiries about GLIN can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
