globephotoThe Global Legal Monitor (GLM), one of the Law Library of Congress’s premier online sources, published 473 articles in 2015 covering legal developments from around the world on a variety of issues, particularly parliamentary acts and court decisions.

When writing for the Global Legal Monitor, we try to focus on issues that we believe will interest our readers.  One of the ways to gauge reader interest is by looking at which GLM articles attract the most traffic.  Statistics show that our readers are interested in a wide range of geographical and legal topics.  The following list presents, in order of popularity, the 15 most viewed GLM articles since the launch of the updated GLM:
