About This Guide



As an aid to law review citation-checking, this guide provides a list of treaties frequently cited in law review articles, along with available sources of hard copy.  In addition, wherever possible, the entries are linked to the EISIL database of the American Society of International Law.  EISIL provides additional citation information, explanatory material, and a link to the text of the treaty.  Courtesy of HeinOnline, links to some full-text documents from the HeinOnline Treaties and Agreements Library are also provided whenever possible.

As part of this guide, you will find Abbreviations and Sources, an explanation of the abbreviations used for publications cited.  For a longer list of treaty citations, see the New York University Journal of International Law and Politics, Guide to Foreign and International Legal Citations (2009) Reference Office K89 .G85 2009.

Database Access Note: access to certain databases linked to in this guide may be restricted to members affiliated with the U of M Law School or the U of M Twin Cities campus. Please see our Databases Directory for further information on access privileges.
