How do I find...a law or a judgment

Consult the law databases

You can find legal maxims, the full text of judgments and acts both in force and not in force, bibliographic references for notes to judgments or laws, as well as the revised text of the Codes. The databases – Italgiureweb della Cassazione, Leggi d’Italia DEA, Pluris, Dejure, Fisconline, Foro Italiano, and LexisNexis Academic – provide different search tools, such as normative or case-law reference, topic or keyword, issuing authority, and parties.

Find the material available on the internet for free

Consult the DFP online index for Public Source Documentation on the web, but remember the following:

  • The Corte di Cassazione (i.e. High Court of Appeal) provides the full text of and official maxims for a selection of recent judgments.
  • On La Giustizia amministrativa you can find the full text of the judgments of the TAR (Tribunale Amministrativo Regionale, i.e. Regional Administrative Court of Law) and the Consiglio di Stato (i.e. Advisory Council to the Government).
  • The online version of the texts of the Court of Justice of the European Union (from 1953 on) and of the General Court (from 1990 on) are available on the community portal EUR-Lex.
