Syntax: Examples:
inmeta:author: author search inmeta:author: "eric engle" OR "engle, eric" 
allintitle: title search allintitle: "knight's gambit to fool's mate"
site: site search torture site:
filetype: extension doc pdf  filetype:pdf

AND conjunction (logical and) (must be capitalized)

OR inclusive disjunction (logical or) (must be capitalized) The pipe symbol | also works.
NOT - negation (exclusion) (logical not). The minus symbol - also works.
(searchterm) Order of precedence

~ includes synonyms e.g. "theoretical~" would return unstemmed synonyms.

"" Literal, e.g. "searchterm" would return only the exact word searchterm. Note that literal search is better supported in Yahoo...

. At least once the full stop (dot) was reported as a character wild card but doesn't seem to function as such. 

* WILD CARD (word, not character) - can be used for proximity search e.g. "eric * engle" AND "engle * eric" will return results where eric is within 1 word of Engle -- the wild card word is intransitive and may act as a proximity operator with the closer results being returned first (i.e. results within 1 word are returned ahead of results within 10 words)

(root expansion) unquoted terms are automatically expanded (stemmed) to cover variations. Thus national should also return nationalism. Quoted search terms (literals) are not expanded (stemmed). Thus "national" would not return nationality

Near - sometimes people report "near" as a valid google operator - I have never had luck with it and it is undocumented.

searchterm1 AROUND(number) searchterm2 is an undocumented proximity operator.
example: "defense against the dark arts" AROUND(20) slytherin

e.g. searchterm filetype:pdf

Filetypes which may be specified include: pdf, ps, wk1, wk2, wk3, wk4, wk5, wki, wks, wku, wp, mw, xls, ppt, doc, wks, wps, wdb, wri, rtf, swf, ans, txt. No space may occur between filetype: and the extension! filetype:doc works. Filetype: doc fails.
allintext: searchterm
+ includes any stopword like a, the, an, and so on
Stopwords are common words such as "the" "a" "an" which would normally be excluded. Google had stopwords but may have eliminated them. Stopwords can be forced to be included through quoting as a literal. "Knight's Gambit to Fool's Mate" would include "to" in the search.

Supposedly, only 32 words are permitted in your search terms. Stopwords are not counted. Google will only return a maximum of 1000 pages.

Why this site

Most law search engines are pay-to-play: trapped behind paywalls, the information is unavailable to the public. Furthermore, most search engines only index laws of one country. Even Harvard law school does not have the search engines for Europe such as Juris or Beck, just for one example. This leaves reformers and comparative law scholars in the dark. This site cures that problem. "Mind the gap!".
Pour quoi ce site?

Les moteurs de recherche juridique sont toujours payants et limités aux sources nationales. Ainsi par example, la bibliothèque Cujas au Paris n'a pas de Westlaw ou Lexis. Les juristes qui font du droit comparé et international méritent mieux, sans rien dire des juristes des NGOs qui ont peu des resources (voir fric).

Voil  pour quoi ce site.
Warum diese Seite?

Die Mehrheit der juristischen Suchmaschine sind eher (Geld)suchtmaschine: die sind einfach teuer, liefern aber nur Ergebnisse aus nationalem Recht.rechtsvergleichende und völkerrechtliche Forscher sogar Aktivisiten brauchen einfach zuverläßige und zugänglicher zwischenstaatlichen Rechtsquellen.

Deshalb gestaltete ich diese Webseite.

Hey! That's me!
