HeinOnline's United Nations Law Collection

Since yesterday was United Nations Day, this is a good time for a reminder about the United Nations Law Collection on HeinOnline. Finding international sources can be a challenge. This collection should not be overlooked when searching for treaties, international arbitration rules and awards, International Court of Justice judgments and case materials, and so much more.  Special finding features also make it easy to search for a treaty or agreement by citation, popular name, and other identifiers.

The United Nations Law Collection consists of nine sections: Treaty Publications; International Court of Justice (ICJ); United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL); International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS); United Nations Yearbooks; United Nations Serials; Codification and Progressive Development of International Law; and United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research.  There is a wealth of material here for researching topics in international law, trade, and human rights, as well as for the source gathering of specific documents--all of it in PDF.
