Back in August 2022, we held a Lunch and Learn Webinar, “An Overview of Treaty Research,” presented by legal reference librarian Louis Myers.

This webinar provided 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. We looked at different treaty compilations and indexes, and both online and physical resources to find treaties. The presentation went over information specific to treaty research, including an introduction and overview of special terms and phrases used in treaty practice. Louis also provided detailed research examples to find U.S. treaties, select foreign treaties, and multilateral treaties. Lastly, resources on travaux préparatoires (similar to U.S. legislative history materials) were introduced and discussed.
