Treaty referencing: Treaty Series

I am having trouble understanding what is meant when you are asked to put the treaty series in the reference. What is this and where can I find it? For example the Paris Convention, it seems to be 828 UNTS 303 but I'm not sure where this has come from and what it means.

Hi Kate,

we have a good Study Guide for the law subject 'Public International Law'. It is here.

The guide gives you a link to the UN Treaty Series website. The treaties are published in volumes. Volume 828, page 303 is indeed the Paris Convention or to give it its complete and glorious title: 

'Paris Convention for the protection of industrial property of March 20, 1883, as revised at Brussels on December 14, 1900, at Washington on June 2, 1911, at The Hague on November 6, 1925, at London on June 2, 1934, at Lisbon on October 31, 1958, and at Stockholm on July 14 1967.'

Tips for citing treaties can be found in our AGLC guide although that UTS subject uses OSCOLA. There is a tab in the study guide to help with that,
