International Legal Research in a Nutshell

ebook
This Nutshell provides a basic introduction to international and foreign legal research for the non-specialist. It offers guidance through the unfamiliar pathways of research using international and non-US legal legal materials and demystifies the world of treaties and international case law. Since it's aimed at the non-specialist, it provides straight-forward background information on the United Nations and the European Union and includes guidance using the documents and legal materials of these institutions. There are extensive links to the rich world of Web resources, but it also describes print research tools that remain important in this field. Finally, it sets out a road map for approaching a research problem involving international, foreign and comparative law.
Additional teaching materials are available for this title, and include online links to research sources noted in the book:
  • Appendix A: Comprehensive List of Sources
  • Appendix B: Websites Containing National Law
  • Appendix C: Web Treaty Collections
  • Appendix D: Planning Your Research and Organizational Tools
