Professor Robert McCorquodale contributes to a new book about Public International Law


Cases & Materials on International Law (6th edition), authored by Robert McCorquodale, with Sarah Williams and Martin Dixon, has just been published by Oxford University Press.

Cases & Materials on International Law offers broad coverage about public international law and it places international disputes directly within the context of contemporary debate. The book contains the essential cases and materials to understand fully and analyse the international legal system, drawing on a truly global range of jurisdictions and sources, including its application in domestic law. Expert author commentary and notes place selected extracts within the wider legal framework and explain the complexities of the principles of law.

The sixth edition includes expanded discussion of developing areas, including UN resolutions on climate change and international environmental law, new material from the International Law Commission, and coverage of major events, such as the annexation of Crimea, the legal context for Scottish independence, and the United Nations Security Council's Resolution on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.

Details about the book are available on the publisher’s website here.
