"ORIL covers case law from international courts and dispute settlement bodies, in addition to states and certain territorial entities that are not generally classified as states. The full text of new decisions of relevance to any of the ORIL modules is sourced by the reporters for that module as soon as possible after the judgment is given or the decision is made. For all modules except ICGJ a full case report is then commissioned, together with expert analysis if appropriate, to draw out the important points in the case and illustrate the relevance of the decision in the landscape of the law and practice covered by that module, or indeed in the wider sphere of international law covered by other ORIL modules."""""
