Fordham International Law Journal
The Fordham International Law Journal is the #1-cited student-run international law periodical in the world and the third most cited specialty legal periodical in the United States, according to a study done by the Washington and Lee University School of Law. The ILJ publishes six books annually covering diverse foreign and international legal issues and containing scholarly articles, essays, book reviews, and student pieces. Of these six books, five have individual themes, each presenting a comprehensive examination of a specific international issue of consequence. One book per year has an 'open' theme, in which we publish pieces on a variety of international topics. As the Fordham International Law Journal enters its 29th year in publication, the upcoming volume will contain a range of themes, including: International Trade and Developing Countries, Transnational Legal Theory and Practice, a Fordham Law Centennial tribute, the European Union, and International Human Rights and Justice. This year's annual European Union book will be dedicated to E.U. Advocate General Francis Jacobs, and will cover the areas that he has helped shape during his career, including antitrust policy, intellectual property law, and E.U. constitutional law. The ILJ's ongoing involvement with the global, national, and local legal communities remains prominent. In association with Fordham's Crowley Program on International Human Rights, the ILJ annually publishes the Crowley Report, a survey of the Program's yearly international human rights mission. In the Fall, the Journal assists in the organization and production of the Fordham Corporate Law Institute's annual conference on International Antitrust Law and Policy, as well as the New York City Bar Association's annual reception for the Legal Advisers of the Foreign Ministries of the United Nations. Furthermore, the ILJ collaborates with the Fordham Urban Law Journal to publish ADR & the Law, a leading periodical dedicated to alternative dispute resolution and surrounding issues.
