Maryland Journal of International Law

The Maryland Journal of International Law (MJIL) continues the legacy of the "Maryland Journal of International Law and Trade," which was once published at the School of Law and was one of the preeminent and most widely cited student-edited international law journals in the country. MJIL is a primary scholarly outlet for the International and Comparative Law Program and provides a unique forum for scholarly discourse on a wide range of issues of international and comparative law. Authors include experts in the field of international law, academics, practitioners, and politicians. Student notes are also featured.
