In 2006 Oxford Law started with Oxford Reports on International Law in Domestic Courts (ILDC), the first online module of Oxford Reports on International Law (ORIL). It was set up as a publication that would feature cases on how domestic courts across the world apply (or do not apply) international law.
The first Report was launched on 19 September 2006 and contained 113 case reports. Weekly updates followed. Andre Nollkaemper (University of Amsterdam) and Erika de Wet (University of Pretoria) were the first editors-in-chief. Current editors-in-chief are Andre Nollkaemper and August Reinisch (University of Vienna).
Today an international team of reporters select cases from local jurisdictions, put decisions in their particular background and explain their effect.
And now, ten years later, Oxford Reports on International Law features over 5000 case reports from nearly 100 countries spread over several modules. The Oxford Public International Law platform is considered an essential resource for the international law researcher and provides a treasure of information.
Oxford University Press invites you to explore the top 10 most consulted ILDC cases, to find out what makes these cases of special interest to practitioners and scholars alike.
