Up-to-date information on the development of laws and regulations in the Commonwealth of Nations.

The British Empire is no more, its place taken by a multitude of free and independent states. Its legacy, however, survives in the form of social and economic transformations, cultural ties and a body of laws and precedents that link nations from Australia to Zimbabwe, from Belize to Vanuatu. The institutional expression of these ties is the Commonwealth of Nations and its highest governing body, the Commonwealth Secretariat. Each issue of the Bulletin contains the following:

  • Summaries of important legislation from each member state
  • Key judicial decisions
  • Reports on legal reform
  • Notice of new regulations affecting legal professionals in the member states
  • Changes and decisions in international conventions and courts as they affect member states
  • Top-ranked scholarly articles on international law
  • Book reviews, notices and announcements


Commonwealth nations share an underlying body of law and precedents, impacting the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Singapore, South Africa and the Indian subcontinent, as well as numerous other countries in Africa, the Caribbean, Europe and East Asia. This makes the Commonwealth Law Bulletin an essential resource for legal scholars, students or practitioners with an interest in these countries, no matter where they are. Now, with publication of the microfiche edition, libraries can provide their patrons with ready access to the full backfile of this significant publication, in a lasting, secure format silver halide microfiche.
