 Dear Visitor to the New International & Foreign Law Community Page,

As site coordinator for the LexisNexis International & Foreign Law Community page and on behalf of LexisNexis’ Team International & Foreign Law, I’d like to welcome you to our new page and our new look.  We hope that you will find this new design and approach to be more satisfying and comfortable for you to use.  The left hand navigation bar lists our major categories of content and mousing over any one will enable you to engage the fly out that will allow you to glance at what addition content  may be found under that category.  Should you encounter any technical aspects of this new design that are not to your liking for any reason, please let us know so that we can try to make further improvements.

Change always induces reactions.  Those of you who have come to know our old site may rest assured that most of your favorite resources continue to be available on this new site.  I urge you to take a little time to explore our new design. 

One of our main goals is to aid you in your legal research, and to this end we continue to provide our Regional Law and Industry/Topical Law Toolboxes.  These toolboxes provide you at a glance with a swift overview of the international and foreign laws and related analytical content that we have available for you on lexis.com.  Each entry is hyperlinked to the named source in lexis.com so that once you’ve logged in, either as a subscriber or as a one-off credit card-based researcher, you will be whisked directly to the chapter or table of contents for the item you wish to view.  These toolboxes are updated regularly as new content is added to our lexis.com research database.

Our Insights and Analysis articles on emerging issues of importance continue to highlight new developments in various jurisdictions and international tribunals.  New court decisions, new legislation, and/ or new policy initiatives are noted and discussed to give you a “heads up” about emerging issues that you may encounter in your practice.  Top Blogs, useful external links, major legal and political news from around the world and news about the legal profession are all here to help you keep up to date on the latest developments.

Our old International Rule of Law page has been united with this page, and will continue to provide insights into this important principle lying at the root of all legal systems.  LexisNexis' Rule of Law Resource Center remains as an independent non-commercial forum for news and discussion of Rule of Law and human rights issues.

We trust you will make yourself at home in this new space and use it as a base for organizing your work and your day.  It is customizable to suit you and your needs.   There are plenty of opportunities for you to post comments or blogs and to engage with other community members.  We hope you will enjoy the experience and find yourself able to work better, faster, and smarter.
