On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, at 1 p.m. EDT, legal reference librarian Louis Myers will present our next Lunch and Learn Webinar, “An Overview of Treaty Research”.
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.
