Flyer announcing upcoming Lunch and Learn Webinar, An Overview of Treaty Research, created by Kelly Goles.

This webinar will provide an introduction to resources and strategies to effectively research three distinct areas of treaty practice: U.S. bilateral treaties, foreign bilateral treaties, and multilateral treaties.

The presentation will look at different treaty compilations and indexes, and both online and physical resources to find treaties. The presentation will also go over information specific to treaty research, including an introduction and overview of special terms and phrases used in treaty practice. The presentation will provide detailed research examples to find U.S. treaties, select foreign treaties, and multilateral treaties. Finally, resources on travaux préparatoires (similar to U.S. legislative history materials) will be introduced and discussed.

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.
