What is international law?

Private International law (or conflict of laws) is a set of rules of procedural law which determine which legal system and the law of which jurisdiction apply to a given legal dispute. They typically apply when a legal dispute has a foreign element such as a contract agreed by parties located in different countries. Private International Law attorneys represent clients in legal disputes involving citizens and businesses in other countries.

Attorneys who practice Public International Law handle cases involving legal and practical relationships between nations -- including issues like agreements and treaties between nations, international trade regulation, and human rights.
