This book considers the influence of British contributions on the development of international law.

These influences range from the negotiation and drafting of treaties, to roles in the creation, development and enforcement of customary international law. The perspective taken is one from 2014/2015 reviewing on various international legal issues from the establishment of the Grotius Society in the UK in 1915, and seeing their impact today.

This is a novel and edifying perspective in that it surveys and appraises the contributions of British people and institutions in domestic and international legal forums and their role in the development, interpretation, and application of international law. This includes domestic, regional and international influences.
