International Law: General Sources: Unofficial treaty sources
This guide lists essential sources for researching general aspects of international law. For specialized topics, such as human rights and international arbitration, see the guide International Law: Specialized Sources.
I.L.M., International Legal Materials, is the preferred unofficial source. Published every two months by the American Society of International Law, I.L.M. reprints selected new treaties, laws, cases, etc.
The Law Library also received the microfiche format through mid-2005. State Dept. agreements, S. Treaty Documents, Trade Agreements, T.I.A.S., etc. Searchable in HeinOnline's U.S. Treaty Index, Kavass's Current Treaty Index and Kavass's Guide to the United States Treaties in Force. The KAV databases can be useful for finding a treaty text (with a KAV number citation) before it appears in one of the official series and treaty status information before it appears in Treaties in Force.
Search for books and articles on your subject that might reprint the treaty.
