New Online Resources at the Library

Constitutional Law of South Africa (Jutastat)

Constitutional Law of South Africa is “the definitive work on constitutional law in SA. The work deals with both the local case law and overseas jurisdictions and engages at length in legal theory. It offers complete reconstructions of legal doctrine, alternative readings of constitutional provisions, and appropriate criticism of judgments and legislation. This comprehensive commentary on the South African Constitution also contains the Constitution, 1996 and Rules, links to head and flynotes of cases and added relevant legislation.” Password available via e.legal.

Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law

Published in association with METRO, the Maastricht Institute for Transnational Legal Research of Maastrichht University, the Netherlands, the journal publishes articles, case notes, legal debates, legal developments, commentaries and book reviews in the areas of European and Comparative Law and covers areas of interest in both European Law and in the comparative laws of European states. Available via the Library catalogue.

New Trial

Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law

It offers a “high level of analytic coverage of constitutional law topics in a comparative context. The encyclopedia articles —modeled on those in the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law— address a focused range of topics that seek to provide the best coverage of the essence, character, development, and history of constitutional law from a global perspective.” The trial ends on June 15, 2017. Please send us your feedback about it.

New Websites

The House of Commons has redesigned its website. The already robust website now features even more parliamentary information and is easier to navigate, especially on mobile devices.

The United Nations has launched its United Nations Digital Library, which incorporates official UN documents and selected UN maps, as well as speech and voting records. The database features various search options (simple keyword, advanced, Boolean, etc.); makes links between related documents; an interface in multiple languages; and a mobile-friendly user interface.
