When doing research in this area, the objective is to find evidence of state practice, which can be found in a wide array of official governmental conduct, including official statements, diplomatic exchanges, press releases, policy statements, national legislation and national judicial decisions
Hein's Foreign and International Law Resources Database collects an extensive amount of significant international legal material in a format that allows researchers to browse sources such as Yearbooks of international law, US Digests of international law, international tribunal decisions and other significant works related to international and foreign law.
Yearbooks of international law for particular countries contain academic articles on international law, reviews of current practice and selected reprinted documents. They will usually have citations to material relied upon for the perceived practice. The University of Toronto catalogue contains many national yearbooks of international law. Search by combining country name with “yearbook international law” in the title field.
Each issue has a section on “Contemporary Practice of the United States Relating to International Law” that summarizes the U.S. position on international law developments, with citations and extracts to documents.
