Cambridge University Press Announces Temporary Suspension of Journal Printing
Online Access to Continue Without Interruption

We have been notified that, due to the COVID-19 situation, Cambridge University Press (CUP) has halted journal printing from March 25 until further notice. Once printing resumes, ASIL print subscribers will receive print copies of any issue(s) you've missed during this period. In the meantime, you will continue to enjoy uninterrupted online access to all of our journal publications. We know that all of our members and subscribers want our friends and colleagues at CUP to stay safe and healthy through this emergency, and we look forward to their resuming print operations when it is safe for them to do so. If you have any questions, please contact Justine Stefanelli, Director of Publications and Research, at

Published on a bimonthly basis since 1962, International Legal Materials reproduces primary international legal documents reflecting the broad scope and evolution of international law. Materials are selected by the Committee and its Attorney-Editor based on their usefulness to scholars, practitioners, and government and international officials. Each issue contains the full texts, together with prefatory notes, of important treaties and agreements, judicial and arbitral decisions, national legislation, international organizations resolutions, and other documents.
