The Berkeley Journal of International Law (BJIL) is recognized as a leading international law journal in the United States. BJIL infuses international legal scholarship and practice with new ideas to address today's complex challenges. BJIL is committed to publishing high-impact pieces from established and newer scholars likely to be referenced and relied on for a cutting edge approach to topics of international and comparative law. As the center of Berkeley's international law community, BJIL hosts professional and social events which engage likeminded students, academics, and practitioners in pressing international legal issues.
The Berkeley Journal of International Law is edited and produced by students at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law. BJIL's twice-yearly journal publishes a broad range of scholarship that spans public international, private international, and comparative law disciplines. In addition to publication, BJIL organizes the annual Stefan A. Riesenfeld Symposium, through which leading scholars and practitioners assemble to address pressing international legal issues.
