The website of the Ministry of Justice ( ) has a search engine on the top right corner that allows users to search for Sudanese laws. The laws can be viewed only on web pages as text and cannot be downloaded in bulk. When searching for some keywords, such as "companies" (شركات) all additions of the companies law appear including one which was issued in 2015, which suggest that the content appears to be up to date.
