Textbooks

cover

International law
Vaughan Lowe

Recommendation Comment
A concise introduction to international law for “a student to read in the vacation before starting to study the subject, or for an interested lay reader” (from the preface of the book). It is not the most recent textbook, but remains a delightful introduction. The university network offers an online version of this book, so it will be used as reading assignment during the first few weeks.

cover

Cassese’s international law
【3rd ed】
Paola Gaeta, Jorge E. Viñuales, Salvatore Zappalà

Recommendation Comment
Originally written by Antonio Cassese, it is a text written in a simple language, making the principal ideas of international law accessible to all. The only drawback of the updated, new edition is that the university network does not offer its online version.
