Marci Hoffman, Associate Director and International & Foreign Law Librarian at the University of California School of Law Library, replaced editors Tom Reynolds and Arturo Flores as the editor of Foreign Law Guide. Hoffman has been the editor since July 1, 2013. During the first month of her tenure, Brill released the much anticipated Beta version of its enhanced database platform for Foreign Law Guide. The Beta version permits browsing by country or subject. Each country has a page that includes an overview of its government and legal system, primary sources of law, and other useful print and online sources. There is an index of materials that is organized alphabetically that lists all of the materials cited, including print sources, subscription databases, and freely available websites.
