GlobaLex is an electronic legal publication dedicated to international and foreign law research. Published by the Hauser Global Law School Program at NYU School of Law,
GlobaLex is committed to the dissemination of high-level international, foreign, and comparative law research tools in order to accommodate the needs of an increasingly global educational and practicing legal world.
The information and articles published by GlobaLex represent both research and teaching resources used by legal academics, practitioners and other specialists around the world who are active either in foreign, international, and comparative law research or those focusing on their own domestic law. The guides and articles published are written by scholars well known in their respective fields and are recommended as a legal resource by universities, library schools, and legal training courses. The tools available in GlobaLex will continue to expand to cover international law topics, countries and legal systems thus providing a coherent and encompassing research tool for all constituencies. (All of the above cut&paste from their site)
GlobaLex is a worthy addition to the foreign and international reseach tools available on the Internet. My opinion.
What they didn't tell you in the "about GlobaLex" is the link to the "Lighter Side" that shows the movie "Weapons of Manhattan Distraction"a totally subjective, unscientifically proven, completely biased guide of things to see and places to go in New York City (once again their words). With a flash plugin you can play the movie, or you can simply browse such items as "Manhatton 101" and "Higher Ground: Roof Top Bars".
So, this is a website that provides guidance in NYC and abroad.
