Oxford Reports on International Law (ORIL) is a database of peer-reviewed reports of international law cases, published by Oxford University Press. Some of the reports come with scholarly commentary and each is linked to a citator.
ORIL is available onsite and offsite to academic members of the Library. For more information about remote access to databases, click here.
ORIL consists of five modules:
Each case on ORIL is linked to the Oxford Law Citator, which gives parallel citations, lists earlier or subsequent stages of the case and provides details of instruments or cases cited in the decision, or citing it.
The reports can be browsed by subject, date or module, and by individual jurisdiction within a module.
Quick and Advanced search facilities are available. Quick search covers all five modules; in Advanced search it is possible to select one or more modules.
The Print button is used for both downloading and printing. It displays a pdf version of the article, which can either be downloaded or printed using the appropriate Acrobat icons.
Reports from the database can also be emailed, using the Email link adjacent to the Print button.
Help pages and FAQs are available via links at the top of the screen.
