The Maryland Journal of International Law has a long and prestigious history as a forum for scholarly discourse on a wide range of issues on international and comparative law.  Established in 1976 as the International Trade Law Journal, it was known as the Maryland Journal of International Law & Trade from 1984 until 1999.  Publication resumed under the current title in 2009.

The Journal presents balanced coverage on a broad range of topics related to international and comparative law and welcomes contributions from experts in the field, including scholars, judges, practitioners, journalists, and politicians.  Student-written works are also accepted.

In conjunction with the University of Maryland Carey School of Law’s International and Comparative Law Program, the Journal hosts an annual Symposium during the fall semester of the academic year.  Symposium proceedings and related articles are published the following spring.  Recent Symposia have addressed an array of topics in international and comparative law, including international arbitration, intervention in international armed conflict, and the extraterritorial reach of U.S. laws.

MJIL Fall 2016 Symposium

Corruption in International Sports

Download the Event Program »

The Maryland Journal of International Law will hold our Fall 2016 Symposium on Friday, October 21, 2016. This year’s topic will be Corruption in International Sports

Along with the attention and excitement of international sporting mega-events comes the unfortunate reality of corruption. Recent and future host countries of the Olympics and the FIFA World Cup—such as Brazil, Qatar, Russia, and China—have come under global scrutiny for the negative consequences hosting has on both domestic and foreign populations. The broad scope of these concerns, most of which stem from governmental and institutional corruption, include issues with economic impact, migrant worker rights, housing rights, LGBT rights, children’s rights, displacement, censorship, gender inequality, etc.

The Maryland Journal of International Law’s Fall 2016 Symposium,Corruption in International Sports, seeks to bring further awareness to this seemingly widespread corruption. The symposium will allow for international law and anti-corruption experts—from lawyers to academics and beyond—to discuss both the issues with and solutions to the corruption concerns found in international sports.

In addition to the issues brought about by sporting mega-events, the symposium will also touch upon other significant and timely sports issues such as doping, gambling, match-fixing, athlete discipline, eSports, and more.

Financial consideration for the symposium has been graciously provided by The Gerber Fund. The Maryland Journal of International Law would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd M. Gerber and their children for their support and sponsorship of our Symposium. Also, a special thanks goes to the International & Comparative Law Program and the International Law Society.
