International Law

International law is a system of treaties and agreements between nations that governs how nations interact with other nations, citizens of other nations, and businesses of other nations. International law typically falls into two different categories. “Private international law” deals with controversies between private entities, such as people or corporations, which have a significant relationship to more than one nation.
