Flyer announcing upcoming Lunch and Learn Webinar, An Overview of Public International Law, created by Kelly Goles.

This webinar will provide an introduction to the five sources of international law, as defined by article 38 of the Statute of the International Court of Justice and the Restatement 3d: Foreign Relations Law of the United States. Both of these are considered prominent authorities on the creation and evolution of public international law.

The presentation will provide an introduction to treaty practice and international conventions, international customary law and its relationship to international law, general principles of law as they relate to international law, and a final category covering other evidence for international law. The presentation will also briefly discuss the inclusion of international governmental organizations, such as the United Nations, within the framework of international law.

Louis Myers holds a BA in history from Kent State University, a JD from the University of Idaho College of Law, and an MLIS from Kent State University.
