International & Foreign Law Legal Research: Introduction

Introduction

This guide is intended to be a brief introduction to international and foreign law legal research.

  • Foreign law is the internal domestic law of another country.
  • International Law is "rules and principles of general application dealing with the conduct of states and of international organizations and with their relations inter se, as well as with some of their relations with persons, whether natural or juridical." (Restatement (Third) of Foreign Relations Law § 101 (1987))
