International Legal Research

The International Legal Research Interest Group (ILRIG) is dedicated primarily to its members' professional development in the areas of foreign, comparative, and international law (FCIL). ILRIG provides a forum for discussion among legal information professionals, legal scholars, and attorneys. ILRIG enhances its members' opportunities to share their knowledge about available FCIL resources, research methods, research techniques, and best practices. ILRIG organizes presentations, publishes a newsletter, and maintains a website that reflects the most recent developments in the legal research profession.

ILRIG members are particularly mindful of the interdisciplinary and multicultural aspects of contemporary foreign, comparative, and international law. Global legal policies and norms cannot exist without strong foundations built on exhaustive research. ILRIG is committed to being a forum for discussing ASIL's unique analytical needs. Toward that end, it publishes a biannual newsletter, International Legal Research Informer.

ILRIG membership is open to all ASIL members. ILRIG should be of particular interest to:

  • Law librarians
  • Legal scholars
  • Attorneys with FCIL practice issues
  • Academic librarians
  • Scholars working in political science, international relations, economics, and history
  • Research professionals from government agencies, policy institutes, inter-governmental organizations, and non-governmental organizations.
