The Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law is a preeminent forum for academic discussion on current international subjects. From its inception in 1971 as a student initiative supported by former U.S. Secretary of State and UGA Law Professor Dean Rusk, the International Journal features work by legal scholars and practitioners as well as student notes written by International Journal members.

With a staff composed entirely of second- and third- year law students, the International Journal publishes three times each year. The International Journal serves as a valuable research tool for practicing lawyers and students of the law. It also provides opportunities for International Journal members to develop their own editing and writing skills.

    Upcoming Conference sponsored by the GJICL:
      The New Roles of Corporations in Global Governance
        April 18, 2014
          Corporations have begun to play a significantly bigger role in international governance; in addition to being the subjects of international regulation, corporations are now becoming increasingly influential participants in the international lawmaking process. This conference, guided by an esteemed panel of experts, will delve into this important development, exploring, among other things, how corporations interact with traditional sources of international authority, how corporations form networks that seek to influence their regulatory environment, how corporations are performing what have traditionally been state functions, and, more generally, the ways in which corporations are redefining the nature of international regulation in the 21st century. The keynote speaker is Bennett Freeman, Senior Vice President, Sustainability Research and Policy at Calvert Investments.
