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.
