International Environmental Law: Statutes and Regulations

Locating Foreign Statutes & Regulations

It is important that you are aware of foreign statues and national laws even though locating these materials can be challenging because you are not always guaranteed an English translation. Though treaties are the primary source of IEL, customary international law also plays an important role.

For more detailed information and sources on foreign law research, refer to the International and Foreign Law Research guide's "Foreign Law"section. 



Search Terms

Often in IEL your topic will be realteively narrow. Use narrow, keyword searches coupled with terms terms of an international nature like these:

              • international
              • transnational
              • global
              • transboundary
