Produced by the American Association of Law Libraries, the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP) is the preeminent multilingual index to articles and book reviews appearing in over 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 other than the United States, the U.K., Canada, and Australia. IFLP also analyzes the contents of approximately fifty individually published collections of legal essays, Festschriften, Mélanges, and congress reports each year.
Beginning in 1960, the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals was first published by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies at the University of London. In 1984, IFLP moved to its present location in the Law Library at BerkeleyLaw, University of California, Berkeley, 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.
The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is now published in both print and electronic formats by the William S. Hein & Co.. Subscription information can be found on our Subscription page. IFLP was previously published quarterly with an annual bound-volume cumulation by the University of California Press.
