Researching Investor-State Awards and Decisions

20190714_131604The annual conference of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) is in full swing at the Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The conference features substantive panels and presentations, dozens of business meetings, and a robust exhibit area where vendors are introducing new products to academic and professional law librarians from around the world.

One company of interest to readers of the International Law Prof Blog is ISLG, the Inverstor-State Law Guide, which offers the ability to research international investment awards, decisions, treaties, and rules. The comprehensive research focused on investor-state disputes that the ISLG offers appears to be unique (and readers of this blog will be quick to tell us if that's not the case). It allows readers to find particular provisions of investment treaties and decisions interpreting those provisions. It also allows researchers to see howa particular decision or instrument has been considered by other tribunals and in scholarly articles.

Pictured here are three Canadians representing ISLG at the AALL Conference. They are Chief Executive Officer Morgan D. Maguire, Strategic Account Manager Liam Murphy-Burke, and Director of Legal Content Paul E. Moon. And below is a video that explains a bit more about the ISLG Database.
