Virginia Journal of International Law Launches VJIL Digest

by Julian Ku

[The good folks at VJIL asked that I pass the following announcement along]

Now in its fifty-second year, the Virginia Journal of International Law is the oldest continuously published, student-edited law journal in the United States. The Journal addresses issues such as international commercial transactions, trade law, international litigation and arbitration, international organizations, international human rights law, and comparative law.

The Virginia Journal of International Law is now expanding its scholarship through the launch of its online companion, the Virginia Journal of International Law Digest (VJIL Digest). VJIL Digest seeks to sharpen the focus of the Virginia Journal of International Law by publishing concise articles analyzing emerging issues.

Because of its easily-accessible format, VJIL Digest will be particularly useful to practitioners and scholars alike. VJIL Digest has recently published manuscripts from the following scholars and practitioners:

Professor Kenneth Anderson, Professor of Law, Washington College of Law, American University; Non-Resident Visiting Fellow Brookings Institution (Governance Studies)
Dr. Tariq Hassan, Attorney, Supreme Court of Pakistan; Former Chairman, SEC of Pakistan; Former Senior Counsel, World Bank
Dr. Chibli Mallat, Visiting Professor of Islamic Legal Studies, Harvard Law School, Presidential Professor of Law & Professor of Middle Eastern Law and Politics University, Utah College of Law

VJIL Digest welcomes submissions of roughly 3,500 words, lightly footnoted. Submissions may be sent to vjilonline [at] vjil [dot] org. I invite you to visit the Digest’s website at http://www.vjil.org/vjil-online or to contact me with any questions. Thank you, in advance, for your submission.

  1. What do yoi mean “now expanding” if the VJIL has been operating this online companion for over a year?

  2. I’m proud to have served on the Virginia Journal of International Law during my student days at U VA, and to have published a substantial article with them subsequently as a scholar, but I would note that VJIL is ”the oldest continuously published, student-edited INTERNATIONAL law journal in the United States,” not the “the oldest continuously published, student-edited law journal in the United States.”
