The Global Legal Monitor (GLM) is a Law Library of Congress publication providing summaries on new legal developments around the world. It is updated frequently and can be searched by author, topic and jurisdiction.
Here is a list of the top ten most viewed GLM articles in September, including ones published about two years ago that remain popular to date, in the order of their popularity:

In addition, the Global Legal Monitor published a total of 38 articles in September in various legal subject areas. I found the following particularly fascinating:
- An article discussing a recent legislation on tax amnesty in Denmark ;
- An article on a newly enacted law establishing affirmative action on admissions to Federal Universities in Brazil. The law imposes a 50% quota in the Universities for students from public schools; and
- An article describing a proposal in Sweden to curb the amount of money children can spend using smart phones: a measure aimed at expanding consumer protection in the mobile phone market.
