Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals

The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP) is the preeminent multilingual index to articles and book reviews appearing in more than 500 legal journals published worldwide. It provides in-depth coverage of public and private international law, comparative and foreign law, and the law of all jurisdictions including the United States, the U.K., Canada, and Australia. IFLP also analyzes the contents of individually published collections of legal essays, Festschriften, Mélanges, and congress reports each year.

IFLP is published by the American Association of Law Libraries at the University of California, Berkeley Law School Library, where it draws upon the resources of the Library's international and foreign law collection, the largest and most comprehensive in the western United States.

Both print and electronic formats of the Index are published by the William S. Hein & Co.. Subscription information can be found on the Subscription page.
