Public International Law: Collections of International Law Documents

Collections of International Law Documents

Today, most international law organizations make their documents readily available online. However, before and during the early days of the internet, many international law documents were difficult to find. Several scholarly organizations and universities stepped in to create print publications and websites compiling international documents. Although most of these documents are now available from the organizations themselves, the unofficial publications and websites remain useful for their ability to simultaneously search the documents of multiple organizations and as directories pointing users to the documents on the organizations' websites.
