Introduction

This guide provides basic introductory information about each of the international courts and tribunals listed. Some of these tribunals are now defunct. Please note that this guide does not include every single international tribunal that currently exists.

Where possible, links have been provided to where documents of each court can be found, in both online and print format. Generally, the 19th edition of the The Bluebook prefers the print compilations to the online versions, where possible, but it does not include preferred citation formats for each of the tribunals included.

Please note that the Harvard Law Library also has a research guide on war crimes, created by Trinie Thai-Parker.
