"international law" by "MUHAMMAD ASIF MALIK" is a very good book and is also by a pakistani author..............another book that i would like to recommend is "international law" by "L.N.TANDON and S.K.KAPOOR".
these two books should be enough for the international law paper and will also help u in scoring high marks.........
best of luck

Hello Shayan

Since I am studying International Law in the course of my LLB degree, I would like to recommend you some books that were in my opinion of credible value.

1) International Law by Malcolm N. Shaw - A concise book which is considered by most to be authority on international law

2) Textbook on International Law by Martin Dixon - A short but useful book

3) International Law by Antonio Cassese - A least orthodox book in style and approach but raises a lot of thereotical questions

4) Public International Law by A. Kaczorowska - The most legal book in style

Besides these there are many others but the above ones I found to be very helpful. Try to get the latest editions of all the books I have mentioned. Particularly in law, latest editions of books matters to a very high degree.

I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Take care

Awais

Mohsin Ehsan LL.M is on a distinguished road
Default i can resist to answer as Int. law is my field of speciality

I am Advocate Mohsin Ehsan During my LL.M in Punjab University following were my subjects

Int. law and economics
and
Administrative law
amongst many others.

the thing i felt as int.law for css is that, do not use that sub standard guide named khuram qurashi, that usually law students study.

Go for latest foreign books which are up to date i.e

for theory PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL LAW By Timothy Hilear 1999 edition
for case laws International law By Marten dixon

these books are available in Punjab University law College library.

One thing i should mention here that LAW OF SEAS is not usually taught in LL.B course of int. law. so i recommend all the students to study that portion. 90% objective is made out of it in css exam for int. law.

plus give small examples of international events in your question.

example: Topic ASYLUM ------> EXAMPLE IS, ON 28TH mARCH 1954 A CONVENTION ON TERRITORIAL ASYLUM WAS ADOPTED AT CARACAS.

Topic Extradition----------> example, In the reign of Zia several Political workers of pakistan People Party settled in different countries of Europe.
etc like that

hope u got my point.

Default How is H.O. Agarwal's book on Int.Law?

Dear Viceroy,


What is your opinion about H.O. Agarwal's book on Int.Law ???
Keeping in mind the scanty time left for prep, which topics would you suggest to be covered thoroughly and rest cursorily?

The book is okay, in fact I prepared from that book alone but that was because I could not find Starke's book in the market at that time.

Back in the preparation days I made a list of topic that had appeared in the past 10 year papers. I am posting that list here, I hope it helps you to decide on important topics as I don't believe in selective study much.

International Law is not a real law but a positive international morality, Discuss
Object, purpose, basis and sources of International Law
Jurisdiction of ICJ depends on the consent of the parties concerned
Subjects of International Law + Individual as a subject of International Law

Recognition + Disabilities of unrecognized states
Asylum, Territorial and extra-territorial asylum, conditions in which embassy can give asylum to an individual.
Neutrality, neutral and neutralized states
Hijacking
Blockade
Prisoners of Wars (POWs) + Various conventions for them
Duties of sovereign states
Diplomatic agents (their kinds and immunities)
International Rivers
Veto
Legal obligations of a treaty
Nationality, double nationality etc.
