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 2022 Symposium

Our Fall Symposium Aggressive War will be held November 3-4, 2022. The symposium will evaluate the legal and historical roots of the international norm of outlawing aggressive war and assess whether and how Russia and its leaders may be held accountable for aggression. The event will begin with Gerber Lecturer Tom Dannenbaum, Associate Professor of International Law at Tufts University, followed by a response from Scott Shapiro, Professor of Law and Philosophy at Yale Law School. There will be a series of panel discussions exploring specific subsections on this topic, including: Aggressive War – State vs. Individual Responsibility; International Institutional Responses to Aggression; The War in Ukraine and the Politics of International Law; and The Voices of the Victims of Aggressive War. The event will also feature Gerber Lecturer Keith Harper, Former Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council and Senior Fellow at Brown University.
