EISIL: International Law Database

The Electronic Information System for International Law (EISIL)
is a new web resource developed by the American Society of
International Law to make researching international law on the web
more fruitful and efficient.

ASIL created EISIL as a freely available 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. EISIL is envisioned to be the first place to
visit on the web when looking for international legal materials,
a one-stop, quality- assured international law information gateway.

From the home page of EISIL, you can view the general outline of
the international law subjects covered by the database. Each topical
category contains links to primary documents, recommended web
sites, and research guides.
