European Union law is increasingly prominent in commerce, technology, human rights, and other fields, but researching EU legal materials can be a challenge for the typical law student or for anyone unfamiliar with the resources. Globalex, New York University School of Law's foreign and international law research site, has just published the newly revised update of Duncan Alford's "European Union Legal Materials: An Infrequent User's Guide." For an overview of EU institutions and resources and where to find them, this is a great place to start. And don't forget the Justis database, described in an earlier post, for accessing European Union documents online.
