Please join us on November 30, 2023, at 2 p.m. EST for our next foreign, comparative, and international law webinar titled, “Review of LLC Research Reports Published in 2023.” This webinar is the latest installment in the Law Library’s Foreign and Comparative Law Webinar Series.
This presentation will highlight some of the Law Library of Congress legal reports published in 2023. These include reports on immigration, artificial intelligence, environmental issues, and lobbying. The highlighted reports on immigration cover the topics of unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors and whether humanitarian protection can be claimed from outside the country. One area that has been of great interest internationally is the development of artificial intelligence. The Law Library has produced two reports on this topic that will be discussed. Environmental reports that cover net zero emissions and the regulation of hemp will also be included along with a report on lobbying and the registration of foreign agents. The presentation will also review some of the most popular blog posts and Global Legal Monitor articles for the past year.
