ASIL Launches New International Research Site

The American Society of International Law has recently launched EISIL (Electronic Information System for International Law), a Web site designed to ensure “that web searchers can easily locate the highest quality primary materials, authoritative web sites and helpful research guides to international law on the Internet. To this end, EISIL has been designed as an open database of authenticated primary and other materials across the breadth of international law, which until now have been scattered in libraries, archives and specialized web sites.” (from About EISIL)

EISIL’s organization makes it very easy to locate relevant materials. It includes headings for such topics as international law topics as environmental law, economic law, human rights, criminal law, communications and transport, use of force, international dispute settlement, and private international law. Advanced searching is also available.
