Submissions of Professional Pieces
The journal generally publishes 3-4 professional pieces in its Winter, Spring and Summer issues. Additionally, the journal includes 1-2 professional pieces when we publish a Symposium Issue.
Articles submitted should involve legal issues which are international or comparative in nature. Articles should address topics that have not been the subject of articles in other academic journals; submissions should be unique, and address new or changing issues in international law.
WILJ welcomes articles on any topic of international law. This includes, but is not limited to, articles addressing issues in intellectual property, criminal law, environmental law, labor and employment law, education, business and securities law, trade law, admiralty and maritime law, and military law.
We only accept submissions for publication through ExpressO.
Submissions should include the author’s professional affiliation, educational background, and publication history. All submissions should be in Word format, typed in English with text double-spaced. Manuscripts must be submitted online via ExpressO; articles submitted by email for publication will not be considered. Please note that a plagiarism check is standard for all submitted articles.
Text and citations in the printed publication conform to The Bluebook (A Uniform System of Citation) (20th ed. 2015) and The Chicago Manual of Style (17th ed. 2017).
For questions about submissions, please email the Senior Articles Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
