Featured Database: Encyclopedia of Public International Law

The Seattle University Law Library subscribes to the online edition of The Encyclopedia of Public International Law (EPIL). Published by the Oxford University Press in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, it is the only comprehensive encyclopedia on the subject in the English language.  As with all encyclopedias, the EPIL can be used to verify facts, provide in-depth background information, or, as a source of references to other works on the same subject.  The online edition of the Encyclopedia of Public International Law easily meets and exceeds these goals through its authoritative analysis, abundant cross references, article bibliographies and links to the primary sources cited in the essay.

Whether you need to understand an international legal concept or theory or have a specific question about the importance of a particular case or the context of an event, the Encyclopedia of Public International Law online will prove to be an invaluable first stop for your international law research.
