International law is pleaded in the English courts as law, not proved as fact as in the case of foreign law1. An English court will have recourse to the same formal and material sources of international law as an international court would, including judgments of foreign and international courts, academic writings, and the work of the International Law Commission2. Legislation may require that the judgments of a specific international court be taken into account in the interpretation and application of a particular statute3.
