New York University's Journal of International Law and Politics (JILP) Summer 2013 Issue

New York University's Journal of International Law and Politics (JILP) is currently collecting submissions for publication in Issue 45.4 (Summer 2013), a peer-reviewed issue that will feature international and interdisciplinary scholarship at the intersection of law and politics.

WHO WE ARE: JILP is a highly selective, student-managed journal that works closely with NYU's extensive international law faculty to publish cutting-edge legal and interdisciplinary scholarship. The Journal attracts some of the leading scholars and practitioners in their fields. Recent contributors include: Sandra Day O'Connor, Mohammed Bedjaoui, Stephen M. Schwebel, Jagdish N. Bhagwati, Robert Hudec, Shimon Peres, Kofi Annan, and three Justices from the Constitutional Court of South Africa: Arthur Chaskalson, Richard Goldstone, and Albie Sachs. JILP student editors work with authors to prepare the piece for publication and also organize online content that complements the print edition. JILP maintains a wide readership, with more than 350 institutions subscribing to the print edition; in addition, our articles are provided to the public online for free on our website, and are fully searchable on LexisNexis, WestLaw, and Google.

REVIEW PROCESS: This issue will have as its faculty managing editor Jose E. Alvarez, the Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law at NYU. Accepted articles will be reviewed by three member panels whose members will be drawn from more than 40 NYU-affiliated scholars and faculty members with expertise spanning a wide variety of disciplines within international law. We encourage submissions from established authors as well as younger scholars, and we hope to attract the best ideas from many countries and legal systems. All content must have an international or comparative law focus, though we welcome analytical methodologies from interdisciplinary fields.

DETAILS ON SUBMISSIONS: Submissions must be unpublished work between 10,000 and 25,000 words (including footnotes), but exceptions may be made for prior publication in draft form on SSRN. Articles to be published in a different forum within one year of submission to JILP will not be considered. Authors must send their submission in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format with all identifying information removed. In addition, please accompany your submission with your CV and a cover letter describing the work and the author's background; this information will not be transmitted to the peers until after they have reviewed the submission.
