The George Mason International Law Journal (previously Journal of International Commercial Law) is a legal periodical founded in 2008 to further the study of international law while providing international scholars and practitioners a forum to exchange, develop, and publish innovative ideas. The Journal publishes scholarly, concise, and practical material from leading scholars and practitioners to provide a source of authority and analysis for the advancement of international law.
Published by a select group of student editors at the George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, Virginia, ILJ is dedicated to the international legal issues. With the onset of globalization and the international nature of commercial transactions, complex issues arise that require thought and development. ILJ is positioned to be at the forefront of these developments, tackling these issues and pioneering the discourse.
More than just a journal, ILJ is determined to be an outlet for scholarship and legal thought. Moreover, the Journal is primarily published online, a medium effective in reaching the Journal’s international audience and reflective of its innovative approach to scholarship.
