About the Journal

New to Oxford Journals in 2011, The British Yearbook of International Law is an essential work of reference for academics and practising lawyers. Through a mixture of articles and extended book reviews it continues to provide indispensable analysis on important developments in modern international law. In addition, through its exhaustive coverage of decisions in UK courts and official government statements, the British Yearbook of International Law offers unique insight into the development of state practice in the United Kingdom.

BYBIL offers unique insight into the developing state practice of the United Kingdom, through a comprehensive collection of decisions in British courts and official statements of the UK position on international law, and features a collection of extended articles providing an unrivalled overview of the latest scholarship on questions facing international law.
