In the years since Cornell Law Library launched the first Annotated Foreign and International Guide to the Internet, several reputable web sites that offer similar information have been developed. Rather than duplicate the information readily accessible elsewhere online, the Law Library revised the foreign law guides to focus on Cornell's collections while remaining useful resource for researchers in general.
- Every country guide recommends the same four general starting points specific to that country:
- "Resources at Cornell Law Library." includes print and online resources listed in reverse chronological order.
- Another subsection, "Guides and Other Resources" provides links to recent academic guides to foreign legal research and to other helpful resources, such as Lexis and Westlaw. The guides are generally presented in reverse chronological order, with Lexis and Westlaw listed last.
