I'm researching public international law. Where do I start?
Public international law is the body of law created through interactions between nations. Public international law does not have a conventional enforcement framework, so no worldwide policing organization exists to ensure that treaties are followed. Instead, nations subject themselves to international law by adhering to treaties, and by accepting customary laws and agreed-upon general principles of law.
