- Interaction between different legal orders and consequences that arise from their conflict or interaction
- Dualism and monism: different ways of structuring the relationship between domestic and international law

- Common law States have additional requirements, such as statutory incorporation or judicial recognition, for international law to be enforceable domestically
- Municipal law is usually treated as a fact in international law; international courts will not usually challenge a domestic court’s interpretation of domestic law
- Non-justiciability and act of State doctrines are additional principles to address the relationship between legal orders
