Databases containing treaties on WESTLAW
On Westlaw, the USTREATIES database contains agreements as released by the U.S. Department of State. USTREATIES is more current than the official T.I.A.S., although it may not be as complete as the print versions. Westlaw also provides several subject-specific treaty databases, such as RIA-TAXT (RIA International Tax Treaties) and INTLENVL (International Environmental Law Documents).
Databases containing treaties on Lexis
On Lexis, the “U.S. Treaties on Lexis” database (Directory path: Area of Law - By Topic > International Law > Treaties & International Agreements > U.S. Treaties on Lexis) is equivalent to Westlaw’s USTREATIES database. Lexis also provides several subject-specific treaty databases, such as “Basic Documents of International Economic Law” (Directory path: Area of Law - By Topic > International Law > Treaties & International Agreements > Basic Documents of International Economic Law) and “Tax Analysts Worldwide Tax Treaties Combined Files” (Directory path: Area of Law - By Topic > International Law > Treaties & International Agreements > Tax Analysts Worldwide Tax Treaties Combined Files).
