Russia, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and Georgia

The Law Bod has collections for these individual jurisdictions on Floor 1. (Also for the former USSR)

The LawBod shelves surveys of law (works looking at how a legal problem/legal topic is dealt with by various jurisdictions/legal systems) and comparative studies in the collection with the shelfmark General 510. This is on Floor 2. They can be of particular use for the linguistically challenged (most are in English), and can be used as introductions as to how a foreign jurisdiction approaches specific legal issues.
