Connecticut Journal of International Law

The Connecticut Journal of International Law (CJIL) is a student-run organization that publishes two issues every academic year. Founded in 1985, CJIL publishes articles that cover a wide range of topics in international law, comparative law, and the extraterritorial effect of United States law and policy. While articles, book reviews and commentary by internationally recognized scholars and practitioners comprise a substantial portion of CJIL, student notes are published as well.

UConn Law students handle all tasks related to managing CJIL. Within CJIL, there is an Editorial Board and Associate Members. The Editorial Board selects articles and notes for publication, communicates with the authors, edits drafts, and manages CJIL’s administrative and financial affairs. Associate Members do the sourcing, editing, and verifying assignments. Additionally, Associate Members write a student note on international law. 

CJIL leads discussion and debate on international law at UConn Law through hosting speakers and an annual symposium. Past symposia topics range from the Cambodian War Crimes Tribunals to the effect of Wal-Mart in an international economy.
