NYU’s Journal of International Law and Politics Announces Inaugural Peer Reviewed Issue

The Editorial Board is excited to announce that NYU’s Journal of International Law and Politics (JILP) will release its inaugural peer review issue in which all leading articles will be selected with the assistance of leading academics in the field.  Given NYU’s acknowledged leadership position in all aspects of international law, we believe that this is a natural development.  This collaboration allows the JILP to draw on both the energy of student editors and the experience of leading scholars in the field.  Authors publishing in the new JILP issue will benefit from additional editorial input and our readers can expect high-quality scholarship in all areas of international law and politics.

This initiative was student-initiated.  The JILP will continue to involve students in all respects but will involve legal scholars who are affiliated with NYU (either as members of the permanent faculty or in other capacities) in the selection and substantive editing of articles in their area of expertise.  The Journal will continue to publish student notes and book annotations.  It will maintain its broad focus on all aspects of international law and seek the finest scholarship from both established authors as well as younger scholars.

The inaugural issue will have as its managing editor José E. Alvarez, the Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law, and will draw from the following scholars to serve on its panel of reviewers, several of whom have served as editors of renowned peer reviewed journals:

PHILIP G. ALSTON

    Having served as an Articles Editor of Volume 3 of the Journal, it is somewhat disappointing to see the change in format. I had found the structure of the journal in its existing form to be very challenging. That said, I guess that time marches on and with it changes occur. I do wish all the best in the new form.

  2. Leah Trzcinski, Editor in Chief on said:

    Dear Mr. Zuckerman,

    Thank you for your comment and for your well wishes. The JILP is very committed to providing students a challenging and rewarding experience. Under the new format, the student Articles Editors will continue to be involved in selecting articles. In addition, the Journal will remain student edited, providing the JILP staff the opportunity to work with authors to develop the substance of the piece as well as support their argument with relevant authority in the footnotes. Thank you again for your comment and continued interest in JILP. We hope you enjoy the forthcoming peer review issue.

    Kind Regards,
    Leah Trzcinski
