Online Volume 1.1 and Print. Volume 22.2 Call for Papers
CJIL is now considering submissions for the inaugural edition of CJIL Online (Vol. 1.1) and the 2021 Winter Issue (Vol. 22.2). Submissions will be considered on a rolling basis. We seek to publish articles which make a significant, original contribution to the field of international law. Articles on particularly timely, dynamic, or cutting-edge issues in international law are also viewed favorably. As of July 2, 2020CJIL is expanding its scope to include comparative law, effective immediately. Essays and book reviews will be considered on a limited basis.  

CJIL accepts electronic submissions through Scholastica at Please include a résumé or curriculum vitae with your submission. There is no need to submit a cover letter. CJIL considers submissions by email at or through ExpressO at; however, submissions via Scholastica are prioritized and strongly preferred. 

Unfortunately, limited resources prevent us from accepting draft articles requiring substantial stylistic and/or substantive changes. Our goal is to review submissions as soon as possible. We will contact the author immediately upon acceptance.

CJIL complies with the Bluebook citation system, as supplemented by the CJIL Style Sheet. Accepted articles generally go through three or four rounds of editing. After each round of edits, CJIL will send a copy of the manuscript to the author showing all suggested changes. Any substantial changes will be accompanied by explanations and questions where appropriate.

If you wish to withdraw your piece from consideration, please contact us at Please include the author's name and title of your manuscript in the subject line of the email.
