First printed in 1978 as the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Comparative Corporate Law and Securities Regulation,the Journal of International Law is the oldest topically focused Journal at Penn Law and widely recognized as one of the top international law Journals in the world. Our history allows us the privilege of publishing the scholarship of premier academics, government officials, and practitioners in the field. JIL has collaborated with the Institute for Law and Economics, the American Society of International Law, and the U.S. Court of International Trade. Furthermore, we are honored to maintain an extensive alumni network spanning our 32 years of existence. The Journal, formerly the Journal of International Economic Law, has broadened its focus to explore all issues at the forefront of general international law, but retains its strength as a leading journal of international business and economic law.
