Foreign Labor Law Research Guide: Journals

A guide for researching the labor and employment laws of other countries.


Law journal articles can offer background information on topics in foreign labor law research and can also provide citations to primary source materials.  The first two listed law journals are specifically devoted to foreign and comparative labor law issues; the rest are devoted to foreign, comparative, and international law generally and will sometimes include articles dealing with labor and employment law issues.  All are available via the Library's subscription to HeinOnline.  To access these journals, you must have a valid Loyola user ID and password.

To find citations to articles from these (and other) law journals on labor law topics, you can use the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP), which indexes foreign (including some non-English language) law reviews and journals.  IFLP is available in print in the 3rd Floor Reference Section at K33 .I5, and is also available online via HeinOnline (valid Loyola user ID and password required).  

Alternatively, you can search by keyword or subject using LegalTrac (which also requires a valid Loyola user ID and password).  Some suggestions for subject headings to search in LegalTrac:

  • Employee Rights International Aspects
  • Labor Law International Aspects

Once you find a citation in IFLP or LegalTrac, you can then find the full text in HeinOnline or in print.  Our print law journals are located on the 4th floor of the Library.
