The Georgetown International Environmental Law Review (GIELR) is widely recognized as a leading quarterly publication of thought-provoking scholarly commentary and practical analysis of both international and domestic environmental law. Our publication spans a broad range of environmental issues such as climate change, renewable energy, the protection of the global commons, regional and comparative issues, and the intersection between the environment and international legal areas such as trade, human rights, security, and technology transfer. The audience we reach is nearly as broad as the subject matter we publish. GIELR subscribers include practitioners, policy makers, scholars, and students worldwide.
GIELR publishes articles, notes, and book reviews which are of scholarly length and quality. Typically, manuscripts are at least 25 pages in length. In addition to being well-written, successful manuscripts address topics with substantive legal components related in scope to domestic or international environmental issues.
GIELR accepts submissions year-round. Electronic manuscripts are strongly preferred and should be submitted through ExpressO or e-mailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. All citations should conform to the most recent edition of The Bluebook. In addition to the manuscript, submissions should include a cover letter, an abstract, and the author's current CV.
(Note: Manuscripts submitted by J.D. students and accepted for publication will be published as notes. Manuscripts submitted by L.L.M. students and accepted for publication will be published as notes if the author is not admitted to the bar in any jurisdiction; if the author is admitted to the bar in any jurisdiction, the manuscript will be published as an article.)
