Happy 10th Birthday ILDC

Happy Birthday ILDC

Oxford Reports on International Law in Domestic Courts (ILDC) turns 10 this year. ILDC was created in 2006 and was the first module launched of the Oxford Reports on International Law (ORIL) service. By collecting together and analysing court decisions on key issues of international law, it has revolutionised research on the interpretation and application of international law at the national level. ILDC now features over 1600 judgments from nearly 100 countries. Under the editorship of André Nollkaemper and August Reinisch, managing editor Belinda Macmahon, as well as former editor Erika de Wet, a global network of reporters selects cases from their local jurisdictions, puts the decisions into context, and explains their impact. Over the past decade, ILDC has shown how international law works in practice and opened up new, exciting avenues of research.

To celebrate 10 years of ILDC, explore our collection of insightful editorial articles, chronicling the early development of OUP's first online law resource, to the top 10 most consulted ILDC cases of today.
