In addition to the full text of state and federal case law, LexisNexis Academic (LNA) contains cases from other countries and regions.
From the library’s home page, select Research Tools – Databases and E-Resources.
Then select “Law” from the subject drop-down menu or “L” from the alphabetical list of databases and LexisNexis Academic.
At the top of the main LNA screen, select the Sources tab and then Cases.
You may then select by continent or by country from the “Country” drop-down box:
“Europe”: thirteen sources from the Commonwealth including decisions from the European Commission relating to competition and European Union cases
“Africa”: three sources including two from South Africa and a third with Commonwealth cases combined
“Asia”: fifteen sources including several from Hong Kong and others from India and Singapore
Many of the individual countries do not have cases available but there may be links to news about them and their laws/statutes.
