The North Carolina Journal of International Law and Commercial Regulation (ILJ) is a student-run legal journal at the University of North Carolina School of Law in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
ILJ is dedicated to stimulating an intellectual environment through legal scholarship in the areas of international law, international trade, and commercial regulation. In order to achieve this goal, ILJ publishes four issues each year featuring articles written by leading scholars, respected practitioners, and ILJ staff members.
In order to foster discussion of international legal issues, ILJ also hosts an annual symposium that brings together the legal community for academic and public discourse on an important issue in international law. To register for our Symposium, please visit our symposium page.
In recent years, international law has been one of the fastest growing sectors in American legal curricula. The University of North Carolina School of Law has not only kept pace with this growth, but continuously encourages its development. For convincing proof of the law school's long-term commitment to providing educational opportunities in the field of international law, one need look no further than the North Carolina Journal of International Law and Commercial Regulation.
As an extension of the University of North Carolina School of Law, ILJ has two principal goals. First, ILJ seeks to broaden the image of the school by providing attorneys with a publication focused on the practice of international law. Second, ILJ seeks to keep the law school in contact with those in the business and legal community that are forging ahead in the practice of international law.
