Washington, DC, home to numerous international organizations, plays a major role in producing significant legal and non-legal information and policy for the entire region of Latin America. These institutions, together with the Law Library of Congress and local academic institutions, constitute a great source of foreign, comparative, and international law, which is crucial to understanding the region and the United States’ relation to it. In this session, librarians from Washington, DC-based institutions will explain the extent of their collections and how to access and make the best use for your legal research.
