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 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 some of 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 an annual Student Note Competition, the ILJ publishes student-written pieces on recent developments in international law and reviews of new books in the field. Past student-written work has been awarded the International Law Students Association’s Francis Deak Prize for the top student-written article published in a student-edited international law journal.
Finally, the ILJ leads discussion and debate on international law at HLS by hosting various speakers and an annual symposium. Recent symposium topics have included “Developments and Challenges in International Intellectual Property Law“ and “International Dispute Resolution in Practice.”
