New legal information search engine in development

The SlawTips blog recently drew attention to a new tool from the Canadian organisation Global-Regulation Inc. Its search engine, to quote, "enables searching 225,000+ laws from the European Union, United States, Canada, China, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Germany, Japan and other countries" (including Australia). It automatically translates text into English using Google Translate in addition to providing the original vernacular text. The database is growing and aims to have more than 500,00 statutes available next year.

It is a subscription service, but free trial searches can be conducted. The list of jurisdictions included is here.
