  • Legal Database: Oxford Reports on International Courts of General Jurisdiction

    February 27, 2015

    Oxford Reports on International Courts of General Jurisdiction is a reference source providing comprehensive coverage of decisions from the most important and general international courts, including coverage of all contentious and advisory cases from the International Court of Justice and Permanent Court of International Justice.

ICGJ cases “are published with a short headnote detailing key information about the decision, rather than a full report. This headnote contains basic information about the case including dates, parties and judges, but also provides indicators as to the subjects and keywords applied to the case, the core issue(s) and any previous or subsequent stages.
