Introduction – UN Documentation: International Law

International law is a primary concern of the United Nations. The third preambular paragraph of the UN Charter states as a key goal of the organization “to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained”. The Statute of the International Court of Justice is an integral part of the Charter, and the ICJ is a principal organ of the UN.

International law is a complex and specialized field. This guide provides an introduction to the key documentation of the UN.

The UN Juridical Yearbook provides an overview of the legal activities of the organization during the year.

Some subject terms which might prove useful in conducting a search are:

  • environmental law
  • international criminal courts
  • international trade law
  • judicial system
  • law of the sea
  • law of treaties
  • space law
  • war crimes
