This guide is intended to provide resources to help with your international legal research, not for foreign jurisdictions.

About the International Law Guide

This guide is to help your research in international law and treaties. It does not include conducting legal research in foreign countries or for comparative law. To find help locating the cases and decisions of foreign jurisdictions, use the Foreign Cases and Decisions guide. To find help locating the legislation of foreign jurisdictions, use the Foreign Legislation guide.


The Canadian Guide for Uniform Legal Citation, otherwise known as the "McGill Guide," governs legal citation in Canada, including how to cite international materials. The McGill Guide is only available in print, found at KF 245 .C28 2018 (Law Reference and Law Reserve).

For sorting out abbreviations, the Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations will get you started.
