This title is the first comprehensive study of international law in the Irish legal system, examining both the general principles governing the implementation of this increasingly important source of law in Ireland as well as its effects on specific areas of practice. It situates the subject in the context of the European Union legal system, through which many of Irelands international obligations now take effect.

This book sets out clearly the status and effect of international law in the Irish legal system, its interaction with Irish and EU law, and the specific techniques with which practitioners need to be familiar when using and relying on international law in the Irish courts.
