- The Armenian Legal Information System (ARLIS) database has been created under the WB financed Judicial Reform Project. ARLIS is a full search engine containing all effective and non-effective Armenian legal enactments in the Armenian language (laws, National Assembly decisions, governmental and presidential decrees, PM, ministerial and state institution orders, decisions, etc.). The database is a product of "Official Bulletin" JSC. In addition to the online database, a CD subscription can be ordered for the database. CDs are updated and delivered on a monthly basis. The subscription price is AMD 2’000 per CD (AMD 24’000 annually for 12 CDs). It is anticipated the database will also provide official translations of Armenian legislation in the near future.
