Submissions to the Cambridge International Law Journal

The Cambridge International Law Journal (CILJ) publishes two issues per year: one open-call issue published in June and one Annual Conference issue published in December.

Volume 9 will be published in 2020. The window for submissions for the open-call issue, Volume 9(1) to be published in June 2020, closed on 30 September 2019. The subsequent issue, Volume 9(2) to be published in December 2020, will be a conference edition that includes papers presented at our Annual Conference to be held on 16-17 April 2020. To the extent we require further papers to fill the issue, we will issue an open call for papers on the conference theme (‘International Law and Global Risks: Current Challenges in Theory and Practice’). That call will be issued in late April or May 2020 and will have a short response window.

For authors’ future reference on the Journal’s requirements, please see below information relating to the call for papers issued for Volume 9(1):
