The American Bar Association Section of International Law provides many wonderful resources for professors, students, and practitioners. Many U.S. law professors are members of the ABA through their law schools. If you're already a member of the ABA, visit the website to join the ABA International Law Section for a nominal fee. If you're not already a member of the ABA, you might find the fee to be more expensive -- but still very much worth the investment. As but one example, the forthcoming edition of the section's International Law Year in Review will be more than 800 pages!
Additionally, if you are a member of the ABA and the Section of International Law, you should look at the list of committees to join. Committee memberships are free to section members, and they provide wonderful opportunities for keeping current with international law developments.
