What’s Hot this Year in the Global Legal Monitor

Share this post:

As we’ve mentioned previously, the Law Library has a great news service called the Global Legal Monitor.  Often these stories about legal developments in many different jurisdictions are ones that don’t feature in U.S. newspapers or news programs, and they link or refer to a wide range of different sources of information.  On the homepage of the site we provide links to both the latest articles and to the five most viewed articles for the week.

I thought it would be interesting to see what people have been reading about the most so far this year.  Below are the top five articles since January 1.  Interestingly, the first three can be seen to relate to a different aspect of information law – freedom of speech, freedom of information, and privacy.

Don’t forget you can register to receive email alerts or subscribe to the RSS feeds to really keep up with legal news from around the world.
