Call for Submissions:  JILP is currently accepting submissions for the 2014 Summer Peer Review Issue.

The Journal of International Law and Politics (JILP) invites the submission of manuscripts on all international law subjects by all authors (including students). JILP welcomes pieces on public and private international law, international commercial law as well as comparative or foreign law. It also welcomes articles on the intersection between law and politics, including interdisciplinary work. JILP emphasizes that articles must have an international or comparative law focus to receive serious consideration.

JILP is not currently accepting submissions for inclusion in the printed journal.  However, we will begin accepting submissions for publication in Volume 47 of JILP on February 1, 2014. Submissions must be unpublished work between 12,000 and 30,000 words. Authors must send their submission in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format with all identifying information removed. In addition, submissions must be accompanied by a CV and a cover letter describing the work and the author’s background. We request that authors conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed.) style of citations.

Submissions should be accompanied by the author’s assurance that the article has not been published or accepted elsewhere but exception will be made for prior publication in draft form in SSRN. Articles to be published in a different forum within one year of submission to the JILP will not be considered.
