Here's some good news for students working with international law topics, research papers and sources. Last week, at the close of its 60th anniversary year, the International Court of Justice launched a new, greatly expanded user-friendly web site. Found at the usual address, but with five times more information than the old site, the ICJ site now makes available in full-text all of its jurisprudence since 1946, plus that of its predecessor, the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ). All decisions and advisory opinions in English and French (some in PDF) , a clear and helpful site map and FAQ page, basic documents of the United Nations and the court, a powerful search engine and navigation tools, plus a photo gallery--these features make the new site of this United Nations world court both easy to navigate and a great online resource. Take a look.
