About the Journal
In an opinion survey published in The International Lawyer, senior scholars in the international and comparative law fields ranked the Harvard International Law Journal as having the “strongest academic reputation” of all student-edited international and comparative law specialty journals published in the United States. The Journal is also ranked third of Harvard’s fifteen law journals, behind only the Harvard Law Review and the Journal of Law and Technology.
The ILJ publishes articles on international, comparative, and foreign law, the role of international law in U.S. courts, and the international ramifications of U.S. domestic law. These articles are written by the most prominent scholars and practitioners in the field and have been recognized as important contributions to the development of international law. ILJ articles have been cited in decisions by the United States Supreme Court, European Court of Justice, International Court of Justice, Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, and World Trade Organization Dispute Panels.
The ILJ also publishes student-written work. In addition to the bi-annual Student Note Competition, the Journal publishes student-written “commentary” pieces on ILJ Online.
The International Law Journal invites current Harvard Law School students to become members of the Journal. Opportunities include:
- Student Writing
New members are asked to participate in one mass subcite, which this semester will take place on Sunday, March 6th. Subciting involves verifying the technical correctness and substantive accuracy of citations in print and online articles. In addition, new members may apply to join the submissions committee, and to take part in the work of the symposium and development committees.
A sign-up form will be made available at a later date.
