Stanford Journal of International Law (SJIL)


The Stanford Journal of International Law (SJIL) is a scholarly periodical devoted to analyses of current international legal issues. The student-run biannual prints articles by professors, practitioners, and students on a wide range of legal topics, including public international law, human rights, international trade, and comparative law. SJIL also publishes book reviews.

Within the law school community, SJIL exposes students to cutting-edge issues in international law and develops their research, writing, and editing skills. Outside the law school, it provides a resource for the exchange of scholarly ideas among practitioners, professors, judges, and holders of political office.

SJIL particularly encourages students to write and publish both full-length "notes" and shorter "recent developments." These shorter pieces are half the length of regular notes and discuss the legal significance of an important recent event in international law.

The staff of SJIL is composed of approximately fifty members and twenty editors who work closely with authors on the material for each issue. First-year students are encouraged to participate in the spring workshop and can become editors by the end of their second semester.
