The International Review Newsletter

International law in plain English TM

The International Review is the award-winning and only academic newsletter published by an ABA-accredited law school that reports on a broad range of contemporary international and comparative law topics in a nonpartisan manner. And in contrast to other legal publications which are often laden with dense prose and technical jargon, the articles in The International Review – which began publication in 1999 – are written in plain English. It is published twice a year by the Center for International Law.

This newsletter is not a law review and does not accept unsolicited articles.

In 2009, the Sixth Annual Magnum Opus Awards awarded The International Review with the Gold Award for “Most Improved Editorial (Print Newsletter).” The Newsletter on Newsletters awarded The International Review with its 2007 Gold Award for “Best Edited Organization Newsletter.”
