Links are also available to Azerbaijani law schools, law firms, government ministries, NGOs and subscription based legal databases.
Many thanks to our colleagues in Australia and Malaysia for pointing out Fee Fie Foe Firm, a specialized search engine that indexes law firm Web sites.

The Global Legal Group provides free acess to their International Comparative Legal Guides. Each guide provides general, regional and country chapters written by law firm partners and associates. The chapters are short, but informative, practice oriented and generally up to date. Topics include: class actions, environment law, gas regulation, merger control, product liability and corporate tax. There are 20 topics currently avialable. This is a site I will be visiting often.
