This publication, International Legal Developments - Year in Review: 2017, presents a survey of important legal and political developments in international law that occurred during 2017. The volume consists of articles from over forty committees of the American Bar Association Section of International Law, whose members live around the world and whose committees monitor and report on a diverse range of topics that have arisen in international law over the past year. Not every development in international law is included in this volume, so the omission of a particular development should not be construed as significant. The Section of International Law committees draft their articles under extremely strict guidelines that limit the number of words that each committee has to roughly 7,000 words, including footnotes. Within these guidelines, committee members contribute submissions that describe the most significant developments in their substantive practice area or geographic region. In some cases, non-section members who have particular knowledge or expertise in an area may also be contributing authors.
