The mission of the Directorate of Legal Research is to provide high quality, timely, and innovative research, analysis, and reference services on issues of international, and foreign and comparative law to the United States Congress, as well as to the Supreme Court, other courts, executive agencies, the legal profession, academic community, and the general public, based on the strength of the world’s largest and most complete collection of international, foreign, and national legal resources.
Unfortunately not many are released to the public and the reports available are difficult to locate. However, a recent research guide gives a good analysis of the value of these reports and some tips on how they might be found.
