Presently it consists primarily of searchable legal abstracts in English of laws and regulations enacted since 1976, but the full texts of items of legislation in the original languages are now being added for some nations. There is also a guide to Online Law available through this site.

The Library of Congress: Law Library Reading Room Services- Although the Law Library serves primarily as the foreign law research arm of Congress, its reference and legal specialists also provide American law reference and foreign law research and reference to the other branches of Government. The Law Library encourage patrons to first consult their local public and academic libraries, county library, and state library before contacting the Law Library for assistance. The Law Library should be considered a library of “last resort.”

The documents included in the database are contributed by the governments of the member nations from the original official texts which are deposited, by agreement of the members, in a server initially at the Library of Congress of the United States of America.
