James Tierney on the Law Review Submission Process
Opinio Juris is pleased to announce that James Tierney will be guest blogging with us for the next few days. James is the outgoing Executive Articles and Book Reviews Editor for the University of Chicago Law Review. He will blog about his perspectives on the law review submission process, with particular attention given to international law scholarship in mainline journals.
James and I first met through Opinio Juris, having struck up an email conversation following a post I wrote in February 2008 on the moral stages of why nations obey international law. After a series of conversations about our mutual interest in international law and psychology, we decided to co-author a book chapter (abstract available here). The finished product is a chapter entitled Moral Reasoning in International Law, to be published in Trey Childress’s forthcoming book on The Role of Ethics in International (Cambridge University Press, 2011).
James will complete his JD from the University of Chicago this spring, and then clerk for Judge Mary Schroeder for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He has an MA in international relations from the University of Chicago and an AB from Brown.
