Pitt Law’s Center for International Legal Education Announces Publication of Significant New Treatise on Transnational Disputes

PITTSBURGH—The Center for International Legal Education (CILE) of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law today announced that the University of Oxford Press has published General Principles of Law and International Due Process: Principles and Norms Applicable in Transnational Disputes, authored by Charles T. Kotuby, Jr. (Pitt Law J.D. 2001) and Luke A. Sobota. This is Volume 6 of CILE Studies, a series of monographs and edited volumes dedicated to the discussion of important issues and developments in public and private international law.

This work by Kotuby and Sobota is an important and long-overdue successor to Bin Cheng’s seminal 1953 treatise on the general principles of law, which identified core legal principles common to various domestic legal systems across the globe. Such “general principles of law recognized by civilized nations” stand alongside or supplement both treaties and customary international law. This volume promises to be an important resource for practitioners, jurists, and scholars in the field of international law.

General Principles of Law and International Due Process is available for purchase now through the website of Oxford University Press.
