In addition it includes all titles from the Oxford International Law Library series and other selected authoritative works by authors such as James Crawford, Christine Gray, William Schabas, and Dinah Shelton.
You can search the full text of all the titles or search just one title at a time. Advanced search also allows you to search just the tables to find mentions of particular cases and instruments. Browse functionality enables you to view lists of authors and contributors, titles covering specific subject areas, or to view lists of cases and instruments cited, see in which books and on which pages they have been written about and then go straight to those references.
All the titles in OSAIL are linked to the Oxford Law Citator enabling you to find out more about any case or instrument cited and to link through to case reports in Oxford Reports on International Law or to related content from the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law.
