Journals provide invaluable exposure to substantive international law. While global topics may be covered in many of our journals, Penn Law has two journals with an explicit international and/or comparative focus.
The Journal of International Law (JIL)
JIL is the oldest topically focused Journal at the Law School and widely recognized as one of the top international law journals in the world. The Journal of International Law publishes four issues per year, containing articles on public and private international, comparative, transnational, and foreign law.
The Asian Law Review (ALR)
As one of the most influential forums in the nation addressing legal developments in Asia, the Asian Law Review plays a critical role in shaping the legal community’s perspective on Asia by publishing influential articles 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 shaping how the U.S. legal academy and broader society understand and interact with the region.
