Welcome to Juscogens.net, a website dedicated to recent developments in the field of public international law. Specifically, Jus cogens aims to provide concise, informed background and analysis in an unbiased, objective, timely, and scholarly manner. Sources include the opinions of international tribunals, international conventions, international organizations, international custom, and the judicial decisions and teachings of qualified publicists.

Traditional legal publications, including law reviews and journals, undertake lengthy, time-consuming editorial reviews prior to publishing recent developments. Such "recent" developments are often weeks, if not months, old by the time of publication. Jus cogens seeks to remedy this inefficiency.

A corollary purpose of jus cogens is to provide a convenient, centralized location of online public international law resources for scholars, attorneys, students, and others. Permanent and dynamic resources include:

* International Courts & Tribunals
* International Organizations
* Treaties & Conventions
* Recent International Law Scholarship
