scales of justice

Following a successful free trial during the Lent Term the University Library and ebooks@cambridge are pleased to announce that access to Cambridge Law Reports (CLR) is now available. CLR offers access to both the International Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) Reports and the International Law Reports (ILR). There are extensive search options and a browse feature which allow users to find required content using variables such as keyword, the parties involved, judge’s name, court or year of case.

The ICSID reports provides the only comprehensive collection of the decisions of tribunals and committees established under the World Bank’s International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes, a key contribution to the jurisprudence on international investment. The series also includes arbitration in relation to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The ILR is the only publication devoted to systematic reporting (in English) of full decisions from international courts and arbitrators, as well as judgments of national courts, from 1919 to the present.

Records for the ICSID and ILR reports will be searchable in LibrarySearch very soon, and access to the CLR platform can be found from here.

Access to these reports is available with unlimited concurrent access and both on and off campus (with a Raven login).
