Great Resources: HeinOnline – Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law Publications


This fifty-second installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.

While the Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law Publications collection may be small compared to other HeinOnline databases, the documents it offers are an extremely valuable resource for one searching for sources of commentary in this field. Slightly larger than 50 items, this collection is made up largely of publications from the 1950s-1970s and focuses largely on US foreign relations with many European nations and especially with the Soviet Union.

Among these are materials on comparing Soviet and Western law as well as commentary and histories of the Soviet legal system. The materials also include interpretations of foreign legal codes as well as selected readings on foreign and comparative law. This collection would definitely be worth a look for anyone interested in, or researching, international law.
