There exists a Polar Law that sits within the framework of international law, and is to be distinguished from the national laws of states with Polar territorial claims. Polar Law first began to emerge in the early 1900s when legal scholars initially grappled with the complexities of applying general international law to the Polar regions. The Permanent Court of International Justice in Eastern Greenland acknowledged that Polar lands were distinctive and that the international law rules that applied elsewhere needed to be modified in a Polar context. The 1959 Antarctic Treaty further developed the distinctiveness of Polar Law and that has been continued with the Arctic Council System spawned by the Arctic Council. Polar Law has evolved to be framed around distinctive responses to territoriality, governance, environment and resources in the Polar regions. In sum, Polar Law reflects a form of international stewardship over the Antarctic and Arctic.

This research review provides a comprehensive overview of the law of the polar regions. It traces the historical development of polar law in the Arctic and Antarctic and then assesses in detail the specific legal regimes that have developed for both regions. Common elements are traced in assessing recent and future developments in international polar law as it has evolved from a narrow legal discourse into one that reflects a significant body of international law for regions that have increasing significance in global affairs. This research review will be an important resource for students, academics and practitioners.
