Lunch and Learn Webinar Series: An Overview of Public International Law
Our Lunch and Learn Webinar Series takes a deep dive into the Law Library's collections and other legal research subjects, exploring topics such as rare materials in our collection and the United States Serial Set, among many others.

In this entry in the series, learn more about the five sources of public international law: treaties, customs, principles of law, judicial decisions and scholarly writings.

This webinar will provide an introduction to the four sources of international law, as defined by Article 38 of the Statute of the International Court of Justice and the Restatement 3d: Foreign Relations Law of the United States. Both of these are considered prominent authorities on the creation and evolution of public international law.

The presentation will provide an introduction to treaty practice and international conventions, international customary law and its relationship to international law, general principles of law as they relate to international law, and a final category covering other evidence for international law; which includes scholarly writings and judicial decisions. The presentation will also briefly discuss the inclusion of International Governmental Organizations (IGOs) such as the United Nations within the framework of international law.
