How To Find World Laws

The majority of legal research is conducted within a single jurisdiction. But in an increasingly global world there’s sometimes a need for legal research that crosses borders. How can searches be conducted across several countries or even the world?

Global-Regulation’s search engine is one answer. It can be used to search for the majority of the digitally published laws (translated into English) for almost 50 countries worldwide. The search engine allows for comparison across jurisdictions and filtering by country/date.

Alternative to Global-Regulation include:

  • Searching each national legislation portal
  • Using products from LexisNexis and WestLaw that have cross-jurisdiction databases
  • For some regions, like southern Africa (SAFLII) and Micronesia (PacLII), there are free legal services that aggregate the laws.

Analysis of Global Climate Change Laws

We’ve used the Global-Regulation global law analytics tool to analyse world climate change laws: https://www.global-regulation.com/analytics.php?q=climate+change.

Close up of climate change laws for selected countries

It’s interesting to note that in recent years the United Kingdom and the European Union have been the most active legislators in the area of climate change.

You can explore the data yourself by going to https://www.global-regulation.com/analytics.php?q=climate+change. If you’d like to see the specific laws (and filter by country or year) you can use the regular search: https://www.global-regulation.com/search.php?blog.

Analytics For The World’s Laws: Near Instant Statistical Analysis and Graphs

We’re very pleased to announce the launch of our newest feature: a global legislation analytics tool. The best way to understand the tool is to try it out for yourself: https://www.global-regulation.com/analytics.php?q=cement+import.

The analytics tool runs a given search across our entire database and then for each individual country in the database to produce an analytics report that summarizes all of the statistical information we have available on the laws (primarily derived from word counts for individual laws and number of laws).

The available graphs (as of April, 2016) are:

  1. Number of laws by country
  2. Percentage of laws that match the search, by country
  3. Approximation of legal complexity, by country and by continent/region
  4. Heatmap of legal complexity, by country
  5. A timeline of laws passed (excluding the US), by country

The analytics service returns the top 10 individual matches by jurisdiction so the user can get a better feel for the data that went into the graphs. The analytics are powered by the same search engine as the basic search tool and we encourage users to explore the data first in the search tool and then move over to the analytics to get a global picture.

The analytics are run on our entire database, currently over 1.3 million laws from 47 countries (and many provinces/states within the US & Canada).

You can run your own analytics search here: https://www.global-regulation.com/analytics.php. Subscribers can run an unlimited number of searches, guest users are limited to 10 searches for free.

Example analytics graph, for "university endowment"

Example analytics graph: “university endowment”

Example: laws that mention "climate change" since 1990 (non-US)
