Journals provide invaluable exposure to substantive international law. Although global topics may be covered in many of Penn Carey Law’s journals, the Law School has two journals with an explicit international and/or comparative focus.
Journal of International Law (JIL)
JIL is the oldest topically focused journal at Penn Carey Law and is widely recognized as one of the top international law journals in the world. Journal of International Law publishes four issues per year, containing articles on public and private international, comparative, transnational, and foreign law.
Chase Hanson L’23, Editor-in-Chief
“My experience has enabled me to interact with legal scholars writing at the forefront of international, transnational, foreign, and comparative law. Through these interactions, I’ve deepened my understanding of important legal issues and broadened my perspective to appreciate the challenges currently facing the international legal community. JIL has been the catalyst for this growth and my experience at Penn Law has been greatly enriched because of it.”
Asian Law Review (ALR)
As one of the premier journals in the nation addressing legal developments in Asia, the Asian Law Review plays a critical role in shaping the legal community’s perspective by publishing influential articles on Asia at a time when the region’s importance is growing at an exponential rate. ALR contributes to scholarly debates about the evolution of law and society in Asia and shapes how the U.S. legal academy and broader society understand and interact with the region.
