Westminster Law Library has added access to three new International Law databases from Oxford Reports: Internal Criminal Law, International Human Rights Decisions, and International Courts of General Jurisdiction. From our Databases/Indexes choices, choose “Oxford Reports on International Law” and you will find links to these three new resources, as well as our old friend, International Law in Domestic Courts.
The International Criminal Law database includes cases from the International Criminal Court, international tribunals, special courts, and the Extraordinary Chambers for Cambodia. The International Human Rights Decisions includes decisions and awards from the European Court of Human Rights, the Inter-American Commission and Court of Human Rights, the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights, and several UN Committees. The International Courts of General Jurisdiction includes decisions and awards from the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of International Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. All the databases are updated regularly.
Another feature on the site is the Oxford Law Citator, which links to key details of a decision including official and parallel citations, procedural stages, cases cited in and citing the decision, and available case reports and judgments.
