GlobalCourts: Access to Supreme Court Decisions Worldwide

Cornell Law Library's electronic newsletter, InSite
(6/19/2006) points us to GlobalCourts, a web
resource that "attempts to provide legal researchers
with direct access to the Supreme Court decisions of
countries around the world." Courts are organized
on the site alphabetically and by geographic region.
There is no search capability.

According to the site, access to decisions is usually
in their native language and free of charge. In some
instances you will need an account or a password,
or you may need to inquire by sending an e-mail
to the court.
