The Minnesota Journal of International Law is a student-led publication at the University of Minnesota Law School. We aspire to be a leader in the multidisciplinary study of international and comparative law. The Journal annually publishes two print volumes and one online edition. Each publication consists of articles and notes relating to various topics in international law, including international politics, trade and economics, human rights, and humanitarian law. Our authors range from international scholars, legal experts to our very own student staff members.
Student staff members are selectively chosen after completing a competitive two week petition process. Incoming staff members are responsible for assisting in the editing process of publication. Staff members also spend many hours writing their own articles – either a “note” or a “comment” – which they are then able to submit for publication. After spending one year as staffers, students are promoted to editorial positions. Editors work diligently to ensure the Journal remains a respected and qualified source of international law. Our staffers and editors play a key role in the Journal’s success and are an integral part of the Journal’s future.
On this website, you can find PDFs of the Journal’s previous publications divided by volume and issue numbers. In addition, staff members and editors will begin submitting blog posts here to share their experiences and knowledge of numerous topics in international law. We are lucky to have such a diverse and talented group of law students and are excited to share our talents and interests with the world.
