A lire sur la liste INT-LAW, ce message de Lyonette Louis-Jacques daté du 24 septembre posant une question sur les ressources pour se tenir au courant en droit international

Ceci pour montrer à quoi peut servir utilement une liste de discussion entre professionnels : Lyonette fait bien plus que poser une question = elle réalise ici un véritable petit cours de recherche documentaire sur ce sujet précis et demande à tout le monde si on ne peut pas trouver mieux...

Dear all - this is a general question. Please respond directly to me at llou@midway.uchicago.edu and I’ll summarize the responses for the list.

What resources do y’all use to find out about current developments or issues in international law ? To discover topics to write about. Any particular newsletters, newsfeeds, blogs, websites, listservs, news clipping services, etc.? I’m interested in any sources in any language, but particularly if they are daily or weekly and customized for international law-related topics. And news that arrives via e-mail in your inbox everyday that’s relevant to your work. Any particular databases, free or fee ? What useful resources for international lawyers, faculty, students that they can use for current awareness and for ideas for scholarly writing ?

Harvard Law Library has an "International Law News" page at http://www.law.harvard.edu/library/...
Which ones of the resources listed there do y’all find the most useful ? Any other sources ?

I know that the American Society of International Law has an "International Law in the News" page : ttp://www.asil.org/inthenews/index.html

I also know you can use BNA e-alerts for news re developments in International Trade, the WTO, and international business generally.

LexisNexis and WESTLAW have clipping service features - which library/files and databases do you find the most useful ? Any standard search you run daily or weekely for useful international law or international relations news ?

There are also two newsletters, International Law Update
(http://www.internationallawupdate.com/) and International Enforcement Law Reporter (monthly)(http://www.ielr.com/).

I’ve essayed this before, but need to update the info : http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/~llou/f...

And Jill Watson includes useful resources in her "Keeping Current with International Legal Developments via the Web" at http://www.llrx.com/features/keeping.htm

Please send your suggestions for keeping up with international law developments to me and I’ll summarize the responses for the list.

Thanks !
Lyo.
