Online Submissions

N.Y.U. Journal of International Law & Politics Online Forum is the N.Y.U. Journal of International Law & Politics’ exclusive online publication. JILP Online Forum features pieces by international law practitioners, professors, and current law students.

We invite you to submit concise, topical, and timely work that contributes meaningfully to the international law community. Submissions may take the form of essays, articles, commentary, speeches, interviews, or responses to other written work.

Submission Guidelines

We ask that you consider the following when submitting your piece to JILP Online Forum:

  • Topical – does the submission address a current and timely issue in international legal practice and scholarship?
  • Important – does the submission address a critical issue? Will the submission have a practical impact, or support practitioners and academics in a meaningful way?
  • Concise – while we will not turn submissions away based on word count, we are looking for pieces that are lightly-footnoted and between 3,000 and 5,000 words. As a guideline, any submission with more than 50 footnotes is likely more appropriate for submission to JILP print edition.

Format of Submissions

We only accept electronic submissions to JILP Online Forum. Submissions should be sent by e-mail to in Microsoft Word format. The subject line of the email should read “Online Submission.” The submission should utilize footnotes instead of endnotes. All submissions must include:

  1. A cover letter with the title of your piece, a brief abstract, and the word count (including footnotes).
  2. A copy of the written submission.
  3. The author’s resume or C.V.

Note on Timing

Submissions to JILP Online Forum are rolling. However, we will be reviewing content more heavily from September to mid-October and February to mid-March. We also consider submissions over the summer months.

We consider each submission we receive using an extensive review process, which can take several weeks. If you receive an offer from another journal during this timeframe and need an expedited review, please contact us with the appropriate details. Please note, however, that because of our review process, any submission that is expedited for a date less than one week from when you seek expedited review may be disadvantaged. Expedited review provides your piece with no competitive advantage in our process.
