International Law in Domestic Courts

For those engaged in transnational/international legal research ILDC brings you a regularly updated repository of domestic cases in international law from over 60 jurisdictions. The cases are selected by local reporters in conjunction with our editorial board and feature expert commentary, full texts of judgments in their original language and translations of key passages of non-English judgments into English.

No, this is not all foreign case law; however, as you may know obtaining a foreign judgment in English is often difficult if not impossible. This subscription database is a good start to filling that need. International Law in Domestic Courts may be found through the Law Library's website under online resources. ILDC is under both International and Foreign Law - Court Decisions and International and Foreign Law - General Sites.
