Foreign Law

The sources below are good starting points for your research and they are a mix of general and antitrust specific materials. Most foreign governments provide some laws on their web sites, however, they are often not in English. Case law and administrative rulings are rarely translated into English. For more extensive guidance on locating foreign law, see our Foreign & Comparative Law Research Guide.

  • Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Competition Policy & Law Database
    This database provides useful materials such as policy guidelines, competition laws, decision guidelines, case summaries, and much more for APEC member countries.

    This looseleaf set has over 30 volumes and includes translated laws and commentary. It also has an extensive collection of EU materials. Note: this print resource will soon be replaced with an online database with the same materials.

This source includes complete bibliographic citations to legislation and the existence of English translations whenever possible.

We suggest clicking on "All Countries" on the left side and then selecting your jurisdiction for relevant links. For many countries, there are legislation and case law databases, but also try links listed under subject or legislation.
