New International Law Research Guides
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
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
include all sorts of documents, including transcripts of the hearings
webcasts when available. There are many other ways to find out what is
currently happening in arbitration, so take a look at our research
Other research guides can be found on the law library website.

NEW DATABASE -- Kluwer Arbitration
Kluwer Arbitration is now available via IP Access on the CCH IntelliConnect platform. You must register though it is very quick -- just email and password.
According to CCH:
Kluwer Arbitration is the world's leading online resource for international commercial arbitration research. It contains a wealth of commentary from expert practitioner authors and an extensive collection of primary source materials. It is a comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date arbitration library that is designed for quick and simple browsing and searching. Kluwer Arbitration includes case law, commentary, conventions, legislation and rules. This resource has been recently expanded with an Investment Arbitration section. This section provides a wealth of fully searchable investment materials.
We will run this database on a one-year trial basis so if you use this database, please let us know -- and let us know what you think of it!
