International law, also called public international law or law of nations, the body of legal rules, norms, and standards that apply between sovereign states and other entities that are legally recognized as international actors.  International law is a collection of rules governing relations between states. International law is an independent system of law existing outside the legal orders of particular states. It differs from domestic legal systems in several respects. Although International law is a legal order and not an ethical one, it has been influenced significantly by ethical principles and concerns, particularly in the sphere of human rights.
Among the greatest achievements of the United Nations in the development of a body of international law which is central to promoting social and economic development, as well as to advancing international peace and security. Many of the treaties of International law brought about by the United Nations form the basis of the law that governs relations among nations. While the work of the United Nations in this area does not always receive attention, it has a daily impact on the lives of people everywhere. In many areas, the legal work of the United Nations has been addressing problems as they take on an international dimension. The UN has been at the forefront of efforts to provide a legal framework in various areas like, regulating migrant labor, protecting the environment, curbing drug trafficking, and combating terrorism. International law assumes a more central role across a wider spectrum of issues, including human rights law and international humanitarian law.
International law expanded with the increase in international engagement. It is the most convenient form of regulating world order in the present-day world. The principal motive of International law is to maintain international peace and security, which provide for fundamental rights, freedoms, and human rights. The sources of International law are customs, treaties, general principles of law recognized by civilized nations, judicial decisions, and teaching of publicists. The vast increase in the number of international agreements and customs, the strengthening of the system of arbitration, and the development of international organizations have established the essence of international law as it exists today.
