The Georgetown Immigration Law Journal (GILJ) is the only student-edited law journal in the nation devoted to publishing thought-provoking and intersectional legal scholarship on immigration. At GILJ, we are deeply committed to center our community values, publications, and legal training in diversity and justice. The Journal addresses issues in immigration, human rights, national security, international, labor, constitutional, criminal, and administrative law.
Immigration law is complex. It offers a fascinating study of present and future global concerns. The field is dynamic as leaders around the globe reevaluate programs and policies.
GILJ values your time, and we strive to make the entire Journal experience a positive one. Above all, GILJ is a network and community of young professionals. GILJ is excellent for day and evening students alike as a large portion of the work is done online.
Starting Fall 2021, GILJ will offer its members training to adopt a diversity and justice lens in their legal careers. We are implementing this by creating and managing a new program, #immigrationAND that will involve 2Ls and 3Ls on GILJ with planning seminar-style educational and networking events on immigration topics that are centered around diversity and justice. Participating GILJ members will receive a certificate of completion.
