Submission Instructions

The Boston University International Law Journal encourages practicing attorneys and law professors to submit articles and reviews on current issues in international law.

We strongly encourage the electronic submission of article manuscripts via the ExpressO service. We look at submissions made via ExpressO first. Articles will also be accepted via the e-mail listed below.

All manuscript submissions should include a short abstract describing the substance of the article.  The ILJ also encourages attorneys and law professors to submit a CV and cover letter along with their article manuscripts.  Footnotes should conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (20th ed. 2015) and should appear at the bottom of each page.

The ILJ Board will notify you if your article is under review. Please do not e-mail to inquire whether your submission has been received. After completing its review, the ILJ Board will notify you if your article has been selected for publication.
