Foreign Law Translations

This site from the University of Texas School of Law's Institute for Transnational Law is a resource for English-language translations of French, German, Italian, Austrian, and Israeli legal materials in the fields of constitutional, administrative, contract, and tort law.

Note, however, the following disclaimer from the Institute's Web site: "The translations and other documents included in this site were prepared to assist students and teachers interested in foreign law. The collection makes no claim of being either complete or current, and should not be relied upon for the basis of a legal opinion or course of action without careful review of current applicable authority".

Nevertheless, for those who need to consult English translations from legal documents in the languages and areas of law that it covers, the Institute's site helps to fill a void in the area of freely available English-language translations of foreign law materials.
