GJIL welcomes submissions of manuscripts for publication in our upcoming issues via Scholastica. Articles should be less than 25,000 words and formatted according to the Bluebook citation system. Please note that articles solely focused on foreign law––rather than international, comparative, or transnational––will not be considered for publication.


GJIL welcomes student-authored work in the form of note submissions. All Georgetown and non-Georgetown current J.D. and LL.M students are eligible to submit notes for consideration. Please send your submission and any questions you may have to

Notes submitted for publication must be in Microsoft Word format between 25 and 45 pages in length, double-spaced, in Times New Roman, 12-point font. Notes must discuss an area of international law and should reflect novel arguments that do not repeat other scholars’ work. Please include a short (1-2 page) abstract/summary of your note that clearly states its novelty, connection to international law, and novelty/relevance to scholars in the field. The Notes Committee will confirm receipt as soon as possible.


We also accept submissions for our blog. Posts should run between 700 and 1500 words. Sources should be hyperlinked. Posts must not have been published anywhere else. Following publication, posts are featured on our social media accounts. The blog’s content guidelines are the same as for the print journal but with greater flexibility. Send submissions to our Digital Editor at

N.B. GJIL Online is no longer active nor accepting submissions.
