Global Legal Monitor: Top Weekly Articles

Globe Outside the Law Library of Congress Reading Room

Over the last twelve months, we’ve added over 775 articles to the Global Legal Monitor (GLM). During this period the top article was China: Amendment Seven to Criminal Law Passed.

This works out to roughly three new articles every day we are here.  The GLM articles are written by a group of about twenty five of my co-workers including fellow bloggers Kelly and Clare.

Each week I look at the GLM’s usage statistics and update the top weekly articles.  This week’s top weekly articles (in order of most page views) includes:

Social media articles like the Swedish one tend to be popular and are frequently shared.  People are also interested in articles that discuss banning YouTube or Facebook, being jailed for a Facebook message, or arrested for a tweet.

And just a reminder, we tweet some of the GLM articles and use the hashtag #GLM.
