Oxford Reports on International Law in EU Courts


Oxford Reports on International Law in EU Courts compiles and analyses key judgments of EU courts on questions of international law. Each report includes the full text of the judgment, an overview of the facts and the Court’s conclusion, and detailed analysis.

Written by a team of experts in international and European law, the headnotes highlight how EU cases contribute to our understanding and the progressive development of international law. Taken together, they show how the Court of Justice uses international law to underpin its legal reasoning and how its case law helps to shape international practice.

Through the Oxford Law Citator, case reports are seamlessly linked to reports from other jurisdictions, primary materials, and doctrine. Updated regularly with new cases, the module will be invaluable to scholars, students, and practitioners working at the interface of international and EU law.
