The need for international law is on the rise. We get frequent requests on whether Westlaw contains specific statutory or case law of foreign countries, as well as various international agreements.
To determine what types of international materials Westlaw has online click the DIRECTORY link at the top of the Westlaw screen. Click INTERNATIONAL/ WOLDWIDE MATERIALS. Click the MULTINATIONAL MATERIALS link to get a listing of multiple database folders broken down by types of materials or click the DATABASES LISTED ALPHABETICALLY BY COUNTRY OR REGION link to look up what databases we have for a specific country.
The International Legal Materials database (ILM) and American Society of International Law database (ASIL) and International Law – Law Reviews, Texts & Bar Journals database (INT-TP) are helpful databases as well. Westlaw also has an International Law tab you can add to your screen under the Add A Tab link.
