The Santa Clara Journal of International Law is dedicated to exploring current issues in public and private international law. The Journal is a collaborative student and faculty undertaking. Each volume focuses on a timely theme in international law. A Faculty Advisory Board solicits, reviews, approves relevant articles in collaboration with the Journal’s executive board. Student editors carry out article and technical editing of submitted articles and maintain the Journal’s web presence. These peer-reviewed, thematic issues will be the first of their kind published by an American law school. Although it began as a purely Internet-based journal, the Journal will be published in hard copy form going forward. Journal candidates must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.67 at the time of candidate application review for board membership. Candidates must write and pass a case note and complete 50 hours of production work. They must also write a comment on an approved international legal topic. Student executive Board members must have a minimum 3.0 GPA.
