Journal Articles (Foreign and International) Research Guide

This guide describes resources for international and foreign law journal articles.


Locating journal articles is an important part of international and foreign legal research. Many international and foreign law topics are cross-disciplinary in nature and require researching in law-related fields, such as social policy, international relations, economics, etc. The prudent researcher should not rely solely on full-text law reviews on Lexis and Westlaw. Thorough research demands using journal indexes to locate relevant literature. Keep in mind that you may find articles on your topic in both law and law-related journal indexes.

For an even broader range of resources, please see the Georgetown research guide Articles for Legal & Non-Legal Research. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Wolff Library reference desk at 202-662-4195 or by email:
