The Law Library handles copyright permissions of course materials. This includes print course packs, materials that are distributed during the semester, and materials to be loaded on Blackboard pages. Course materials to be photocopied or posted online, regardless of the number of pages, must be submitted directly to the Law Library for copyright clearance prior to photocopying or posting. Once the course materials are submitted to the Library, a determination will be made as to whether copyright permission is required. In order to manage this process in a timely fashion, please submit course documents to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Georgetown University's O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law
recently launched the Global Health and Human Rights Database. The website contains over 1,000 judgments, constitutions and international instruments from more than 80 countries, and focuses on the intersection between health and human rights. The materials are full-text searchable and from both common and civil law jurisdictions. While not all of the documents are in English, the compilers do provide 500
plain-language summaries and 200 original translations of case law that was previously
unavailable in English.
