We welcome submissions for articles from anyone, whether you are a law student, academic, legal practitioner or just someone vaguely interested in international law. Please follow the checklist below and make your submission to the Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- My article has something to do with public or private international law or comparative law.
- My article is 600-800 words long, not including the title or the by-line.
- My article uses simple, light-hearted language, addressed to a non-legal audience.
- My article has very few references.
- Where there are references, they are made ‘in-text’ and included in the word count. An internet URL link is permissible. If there is an extended scholarly reference (journal article, book or conference paper), this can be listed at the end of the article.
- My article has a short by-line at the end with a personal description in light-hearted language.
- I am happy for the Editors to suggest revisions to the article and have the final say over whether or not to publish it.
Ideas for Submissions
We are particularly interested in articles that address topical issues in international law and that can explain these issues in a concise manner for a non-legal audience. However, we also welcome articles on issues which are not making the news. If you are scouting out for ideas, look to past blog articles, our blog categories and current international stories.
