About Oxford Reports on International Law


Oxford Reports on International Law (ORIL) has set new standards for currency and coverage of public international case law, reporting on international courts, domestic courts and ad hoc tribunals. Case reports contain the full text of each decision, headnote, as well as analytical commentary and English translations of a number of key non-English decisions. With reports on over 4,000 cases, ORIL is now rightly regarded as a must-have resource for the international law researcher.

Case reports within ORIL are enhanced with high-quality commentary and analysis. Collected and edited by a team of experts from institutions across the world, including Monash University, University of Pretoria and the University of Amsterdam, this invaluable addition to the case report provides:

  • Headnote
  • Summary of case facts and judicial holdings
  • Full-text of the opinion of the court
  • Analytical commentary
  • List of cases and instruments cited

The case law within ORIL is divided into seven modules, which are available separately or in any combination of the seven:
