The Cambridge International Law Journal (CILJ) succeeds the Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law (CJICL) which was established in 2011 by the postgraduate students of the Cambridge University Law Faculty.
CILJ is a double-blind, peer-reviewed journal with a broad focus on international law. The Journal provides a platform for both young and well-established academics to publish outstanding research on cutting edge, highly topical international law issues alongside, and in dialogue, with each other.
The Journal is published by Edward Elgar Publishing, a leading international academic and professional publisher with a strong focus on the social sciences and legal fields.
This year, the Journal is headed by its Honorary Editor-in-Chief, Professor Eyal Benvenesti, Editors-in-Chief, Catherine Drummond and Patrick Simon Perillo, and an Editorial Board comprised of postgraduate students at the Law Faculty. The Journal is also supported in its activities by an Academic Review Board made up of distinguished academics and practitioners.
CILJ publishes two issues per year in June and December. The first issue is based on an open call for papers, while the second issue is composed of both an open call as well as selected papers from the Journal’s annual conference.
Additionally, CILJ accepts submissions throughout the year for its blog which forms an integral part of the Journal’s engagement with the international academic community (see our Submissions section for more details).
