An Overview of International Law
Public international law refers to the rules, agreements, treaties, and other standards that govern how nations interact with each other.
International law arises from several sources. Customary international law occurs when nations follow practices out of a sense of legal obligation. Customary law has been codified in the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (Vienna Convention). The Vienna Convention establishes guidelines and procedures for how treaties are drafted, interpreted, and implemented.
International law is also guided by international conventions, in which nations contractually bind each other to an agreement. Since there is no globally accepted body that enforces international law, most international law functions largely through consent among countries.
International law may also include private law issues, such as international contracts and arbitration. International law attorneys might counsel their clients on the rules of the World Trade Organization (“WTO”), which is an international organization that regulates trade. The North American Free Trade Agreement (“NAFTA”) is one example of an international treaty that greatly affects private companies trading internationally.
