This project was conceived from the proposition that international law not only exists but also penetrates more deeply and broadly into everyday life than is generally recognized. One-hundred examples of this fact were identified by ASIL members, vetted by a small group of experts, and organized into seven chapters: daily life, leisure, travel, commerce, health and the environment, personal liberty, and public safety and security. This list has proved a useful education tool for non-expert audiences, from students and the public to judges and policymakers.

There are a wide variety of international courts and tribunals that have varying degrees of relation to the UN. These range from the ICJ, which is a principal organ of the organization; to the ad hoc criminal tribunals established by the Security Council; to the ICC and ITLOS, which were established by conventions drafted within the UN but which are now independent entities with special cooperation agreements.

Customary international law is made up of rules that come from "a general practice accepted as law" and that exist independent of treaty law. Customary international humanitarian law (IHL) is of crucial importance in today’s armed conflicts because it fills gaps left by treaty law in both international and non-international conflicts and so strengthens the protection offered to victims.
