International Law

Section Purpose
The International Law Section focuses on public international law, especially international human rights. The following links are good sources for reading and research. We would also offer links to help human rights attorneys: lawyers around the world imperiled for their insistence that courts should apply their country’s laws. You can easily download a letter to send to that country’s government, asking for their legal protection. Those attorneys freed in the past through active letter writing often become powerful advocates and include Juan Mendez, who was recently appointed by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan as the Special Rapporteur on Genocide.

We welcome input and comment about the International Law Section, its activities, and this website. To suggest a site or report an outdated link, please send an e-mail to yatra@ak.net.
