The In Custodia Legis team has developed a tradition of looking back and reporting on those foreign law reports published that year on the Law Library of Congress website. Our team members also routinely review and report on the most viewed foreign law reports, Global Legal Monitor articles, and In Custodia Legis posts during the passed year.
Additional foreign law reports published by the Law Library during 2018 include:
- Sports Betting and Integrity Agreements (Australia; Great Britain)
- Provisions on Child Asylum Seekers (Australia; Canada; European Union; France; Germany; Italy; Sweden; United Kingdom)
- Digital Legal Deposit (15 countries)
- Regulation of Air Pollution (10 countries; European Union)
- Legal Restrictions on Religious Slaughter in Europe (21 countries)
The most viewed foreign law reports during 2018 almost mirror those identified as most viewed in 2017. They cover similar topics such as firearm control legislation and policy, children’s rights and issues relating to citizenship and refugees. Below are the 15 foreign law reports that received the most views in 2018.
- Children’s Rights: Canada (2007)
- Citizenship Based on Birth in Country (France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom) (2012)
- Laws on Children Residing with Parents in Prison (multiple countries) (2014)
