Foreign Courts


Most countries have a judicial system and courts that consider and review civil, criminal, and constitutional law cases. These cases are based on the laws and constitutions of these countries which have been crafted and amended according to their legal and political traditions. Many countries highest courts, or Supreme Courts, have websites featuring information on court activities and decisions reached by these courts. This is a selection of foreign court system websites focusing primarily on constitutional or Supreme Courts. The countries listed here are primarily ones adhering to some variation of western democratic legal norms whether these norms be influenced by the United States, United Kingdom, or by locally inspired democratic legal traditions. If court website content is primarily in a language other than English that will be noted.
