Hague Academy Collected Courses Online

The Hague Academcy Collected Courses Online is the electronic version of the longstanding book series on international law: Collected Courses of the Hague Academy of International Law.

The Hague Academy of International Law, founded in 1923, is the prestigious international institution for the study and teaching of public and private international law and related subjects. The work of the Academy receives the support and recognition of the UN. Its purpose is to encourage a thorough and impartial examination of the problems arising from international relations in the field of law.

The courses deal with the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject, including legislation and case law. They are given by the most prominent legal specialists in the world. All courses at the Academy are published in the language in which they were delivered, either in English or in French.

The Collected Courses Online now covers more than 330 volumes (150,000 pages) containing over 1200 lectures given over a period of 85 years. At least seven new volumes are added every year. The result is a constantly growing fully searchable encyclopedic collection on international law.

The database contains citations and abstracts (when available) to journal articles, monographs, technical reports, meeting abstracts and papers, book chapters, government documents, and newspaper articles from 1975 to the present.
