Using International Law in Domestic Courts

By Shaheed Fatima

International law is increasingly referred to and utilized in English courts, in fields as diverse as criminal proceedings, children's rights, tort law, and asylum cases. Despite this use, currently there is no book on the market, whether a practitioner text or otherwise, which addresses this subject matter in detail. Using International Law in Domestic Courts presents in a distilled format the relevant principles of law and their application in this area. It provides a guide to relevant international instruments and the ways in which these instruments have been referred to or used in English courts. While the emphasis is on stating the law as it is, the author also identifies the principles which are likely to guide practitioners in an otherwise unstructured area, supported by specific examples which will provide a subject guide to relevant instruments and sources and how they can be used.
