Mexican Law – Global Legal Collection Highlights

Share this post:

The following is a guest post by Gustavo Guerra, senior foreign law specialist for Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries in the Law Library’s Global Legal Research Directorate.

This post is part of the Global Legal Collection Highlights series which is intended to inform readers about recently published materials on foreign law available in English in our collection.  During December 2013, the Library hosted the event A Celebration of Mexico.   The program touched on the strong ties between the United States and Mexico, and it is only natural that the Law Library of Congress should have  an extensive collection of sources on Mexican law.  In fact, in 1848 after the conclusion of the U.S.-Mexican war, the Law Library purchased all constitutions and laws of Mexico.  Mexico is a Spanish speaking country, so the vast majority of our holdings in print on Mexican law are available in Spanish. Nevertheless, a number of books in English are available in our collection, of which the following titles published in 2012 and 2013 were selected for this post. Please note that this list of books is not exhaustive but contains some of our more recent acquisitions:

Please note that readers may submit requests for reference assistance on foreign law to the Law Library staff through our Ask A Librarian Service.
