This major reference work allows lawyers and scholars dealing with the Arabian Gulf to have access to a database which identifies laws and regulations originating in each country of the Arab Gulf from the commencement of legislative promulgation to the present day. (The Register covers all the laws in Professor Ballantyne’s library collected and compiled in over 50 years of legal practice in or with the region.)

Helpful practical features include a comprehensive subject heading index for each country which allows rapid retrieval of information required. Quarterly supplements to the main work in two volumes allow subscribers to maintain a completely current record of legislation for all the G.C.C. states.
The Register of Laws of the Arabian Gulf was formerly published by Brill Academic Publishers (isbn 9781853338106) but from 2008 will now be published regularly by Lexgulf Publishers Ltd of London.
