Legis-PALOP legal database now includes Timor-Leste

The Legis-PALOP legal database, an electronic platform that brings together legislation, jurisprudence and tenets from Angola, Cabo Verde (Cape Verde), Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique and São Tomé and Príncipe, will now include the legal system of Timor-Leste (East Timor), to be called Legis-PALOP+TL, according to an official statement.

The statement said that the inclusion of Timor-Leste consolidates and reinforces Legis-PALOP, a platform whose regional coordination works with the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) and is supervised by the ministries of justice of each country, as a legal reference for the Portuguese-speaking world.

Updated on a daily basis, the Legis-PALOP+TL database now has 60,000 legal documents, including legislation, jurisprudence and tenets, as well as consolidated versions of Codes and main legislation and explicit information on the validity of the diplomas, a detail that is available for free and extremely useful for anyone who wants to know about the six ordinances.

The Database provides subscribers with several advanced search capabilities, allowing them to consult legal information in full as well as to make a comparative analysis between countries, a possibility that is exclusive to this platform.

The official launch ceremony of Legis-PALOP+TL is scheduled to be held at the headquarters of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) in Lisbon on 14 June. (macauhub)
