    International law also known as "law of nations" is the name of a body of rules which regulate the conduct of sovereign states in their relations with one another. Sources of international law include treaties, international customs, general principles of law as recognized by civilized nations, the decisions of national and lower courts, and scholarly writings.   The book features well-known experts who critically review the role of international law in governing nuclear weapons. The book moves away from the political context of nuclear weapons and discusses instead the lex lata (the law as it exists) and as it would be interpreted by a judge in a competent court.

      In recent years, it has shaped how international law is invoked by the initiative focused on the humanitarian impacts of nuclear weapons use and served as a foundation for the nuclear disarmament cases brought by the Marshall Islands in the court. The legality of use of nuclear weapons had been considered by the UN General Assembly since The International Court of Justice (ICJ) was established in and is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. Seated in the Peace Palace in The Hague, the ICJ hands down judgments in contentious cases (the settlement of international disputes submitted by one sovereign state against another) and advisory opinions on legal issues referred to it by the UN advisory proceedings.
