International Human Rights Law & Practice: Cases, Treaties and Materials integrates the law of international tribunals and provides a comparative analysis of this jurisprudence with US and foreign law. Developed as a practitioner's deskbook, it presents extracts from cases frequently unavailable in law libraries for use in pleadings.

Civil rights and criminal defense attorneys will discover that international law affords more protection to their clients than local law. Because customary international law is binding on many domestic courts, international law governing--e.g., gay/lesbian rights, racial discrimination, immigrants' rights, use of force, workers' rights, and the death penalty--is indispensable to US civil rights and criminal defense attorneys facing unfavorable domestic law.

The book is supported by a documentary supplement volume which includes the full text of all relevant treaties, conventions, procedural rules, case flow charts and model pleadings. Together, these two volumes provide a complete resource for attorneys and professors desiring to become active in the international human rights field.
