Chapter Summary

Research in international and foreign law usually involves researching a particular topic or issue. As one can imagine, these topics are varied: human rights, taxation, environmental law, criminal law, litigation, trade, etc. The steps outlined in this chapter provide some general guidance and vary depending on the topic, the amount of time one have to research the topic, and what resources are available to them. The chapter focuses on researching just a few of the many topics available: human rights, intellectual property (IP), international environmental law (IEL), international trade law, and private international law. International human rights law deals with the protection of individuals and groups against violations of their rights under international law. Globalization has greatly increased the number of companies selling products and services in other countries, which makes protection of IP rights more important than ever.
