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 links to these treaties in PDF format, when available electronically.  NOTE: citations provided do not necessarily follow the current edition of Bluebook, so double-check the citation with the current edition of Bluebook and/or your law review editors.    

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.
