We have just created two new research guides for those of you interested in foreign and international law research; one on International Arbitration and another on International Investment Law. You will find tabs for treatises, journals, awards and decisions, treaties, institutions, and current awareness. As always, our guides are works-in-progress so please feel free to speak with any of the librarians about suggestions or questions you may have.
Students who are considering paper topics might want to consult the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law and the Electronic Information System for International Law to gain some familiarity with subjects and resources on a wide variety of topics.
For those of you interested in arbitration, our new Global Arbitration Review database provides not only the electronic version of the journal, but also news and trends regarding arbitration. You can also go directly to the Permanent Court of Arbitration site to examine recent decisions as well as documents for cases that are currently pending before the court. The PCA only identifies cases on their site when parties have agreed, but will include all sorts of documents, including transcripts of the hearings and webcasts when available. There are many other ways to find out what is currently happening in arbitration, so take a look at our research guide.
