What’s a Gazette?

October 23, 2010

A gazette is an official government pulication that conveys government business, news, and laws as they are passed to the public.  Most countries have a gazette and many are available free online.  The regularity of publication of gazettes varies by country as do their official names, naturally, as they are published in the vernacular.  For example, the gazette of Peru is called El Peruano; it is in Spanish, publshed daily, and available online.

The gazette of South Korea is the Gwanbo; it is in Korean and also published online.

You can find a complete list of gazettes on our Country-by-Country Guide to Foreign Legal Research.  This portal also has research guides for each country to help you get started researching the law of foreign nations.
