International Legal Materials

Published every other month since 1962, International Legal Materials (ILM) reproduces primary international legal documents reflecting the broad scope and evolution of international law. Materials are selected - with the advice of the ILM Editorial Advisory Committee and the ILM Corresponding Editors - for their usefulness to scholars, practitioners, and business and government officials, both in the United States and abroad. Each issue contains the full texts of important treaties and agreements, judicial and arbitral decisions, national legislation, international organizations resolutions, and other documents.
