Welcome to the website.
This is a site for legal developments and commentary around the world. Rather than focusing on a single topic, it will include areas across a broad spectrum. It is to contrast laws from different system and discuss nuances between them. Broadly speaking, the topics are divided up by: (a) region; and (b) type of law.
Click on any topic to see postings. The archives and categories can be reached at the bottom of all pages.
All efforts are made to ensure the content is accurate. This was the motivation behind it.
