International Law Institute announces the publication of the 2009 Digest of United States Practice in International Law.
Co-published by the International Law Institute and Oxford University Press, and prepared by the Office of the Legal Adviser at the Department of State, this annual compilation of documents and commentary, highlighting significant developments in public and private international law, is an invaluable resource for practitioners and scholars in the field.
Each annual edition compiles excerpts from documents such as treaties, diplomatic notes and correspondence, legal opinion letters, judicial decisions, Senate committee reports and press releases. All of the documents which are excerpted in the Digest are selected by members of the Legal Adviser's Office of the U.S. Department of State, based on their judgments about the significance of the issues, their potential relevance to future situations, and their likely interest to practitioners and scholars. In almost every case, the commentary to each excerpt is accompanied by a citation to the full text.
The 2009 "Digest" is exclusively distributed by Oxford University Press. If you wish to purchase any volume from 2004 to present from this site, you will be automatically redirected from ILI's website to the appropriate page on the Oxford University Press' web site.
