A new web site dedicated to providing legal information for the Member States and the European Union has been launched. The first version of the European e-Justice portal provides information and links on laws and practices in all Member States. It is intended for use by citizens, businesses, lawyers, notaries and judges. New information, tools and functions will be added to the portal in the next few years.
The portal is a good entry-level point of reference for legal information in the European Union. Much more than that is needed, though, in order to make Member States’ legal systems really transparent.
