International Law (6,235 Books)


International law is the term commonly used for referring to laws that govern the conduct of independent nations in their relationships with one another. It differs from other legal systems in that it primarily concerns provinces rather than private citizens. In other words it is that body of law which is composed for its greater part of the principles and rules of conduct which States feel themselves bound to observe, and the rules of law relating to the function of international institutions or organizations, their relations with each other and their relations with States and individuals.
