The Harvard International Law Journal is the oldest and most-cited academic journal of international law in the United States. It is run and edited by students at Harvard Law School, but relies on input from peer reviewers. It originally appeared in 1959 as the Bulletin, and later the Journal of the Harvard International Law Club, taking its current name in 1966.
The journal publishes articles on international, comparative, and foreign law, the role of international law in U.S. courts, and the international ramifications of U.S. domestic law. It also publishes student-written work on recent developments in international law and reviews of new books in the field.
Articles from the journal have been cited in decisions by the Supreme Court of the United States, European Court of Justice, International Court of Justice, Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, and World Trade Organization Dispute Panels.
The journal publishes two editions per year, and its website includes the Harvard International Law Journal Online, which publishes shorter articles exclusively online, and the ILJ Digest, a continuously updated blog of developments in international law.
The journal also hosts various speakers and symposia.
