International law is the law that is used when there is a conflict between countries. There are two different types of international law:

  1. Public International Law applies to all countries but is not enforceable.
  2. Private International Law is when there is a conflict between two or more countries that broke a certain law based on the countries' law. It is composed of a set of treaties.

In recent years, people have also seen international organizations like the United Nations use international law.
