GLIN - Global Legal Information Network

The Global Legal Information Network (GLIN) is a public database of official texts of laws, regulations, judicial decisions, and other complementary legal sources contributed by governmental agencies and international organizations. These GLIN members contribute the full texts of their published documents to the database in their original languages. Each document is accompanied by a summary in English and, in many cases in additional languages, plus subject terms selected from the multilingual index to GLIN. All summaries are available to the public, and public access to full texts is also available for most jurisdictions.GLIN membership is not required to search for information in GLIN. Most of the material in GLIN is freely accessible to the public and the system does not require a user ID or password for search purposes.

GLIN members (governmental agencies and international organizations) contribute original-language, officially published, full text documents in electronic format. The summaries that accompany each document are for reference and retrieval purposes and should not be relied upon for legal counsel. GLIN is a reflection of similar needs shared by government organizations around the world for a lawmaking process based upon knowledge of the laws and regulations of other jurisdictions. GLIN's mission is to acquire, store, and provide timely access to this body of critical research and reference material.

CODICES - Case law of the Venice Commission

The CODICES is a database established in the Secretariat of the Commission in Strasbourg. It represents approximately 100,000 pages of printed text. In addition to the 4000 abstracts published in the Bulletin, the database contains approximately 5000 full texts of decisions, mostly in English or French, but also in 24 other languages. All Special Bulletins are also included in CODICES. In addition, CODICES contains the full texts of several constitutions.

The Bulletin of constitutional jurisprudence and  the CODICES allow all interested persons to read information often inaccessible, except to multilingual confirmed with a specialized library. They thus greatly facilitate comparative research by practitioners and allow them to draw on approaches already adopted in other countries, particularly in the field of human rights. Thus, the flow of information is a powerful force of the "transconstitutionalism", which allows courts to draw inspiration from the constitutional practice of their counterparts.
