The Chicago Journal of International Law ("CJIL") is a semiannual, student-edited law review published by the University of Chicago Law School since spring 2000.[1] CJIL contains articles covering issues of international law and policy.

CJIL's contents are covered by several academic abstracting services, including LegalTrac, EconLit, and CSA Worldwide Political Science Abstracts.[2][3] The full text of CJIL articles is available via LexisNexis, Westlaw, ProQuest, and HeinOnline.[2] In a 2008 ranking of law journals based on a combination of the impact factor and citations, CJIL ranked 73 among the 1,500+ journals ranked.[4] In the same ranking, CJIL placed 6th among international and comparative law reviews.[4]

Staff and editor selection[edit]

CJIL is one of the three student-edited law journals published at the University of Chicago Law School.[5] University of Chicago law students are selected to join CJIL as staff members each year by that year's incoming managing board of editors through a blind writing competition held after the participants' first year of law school.[6] CJIL also allows law students to "write on" to the journal to become staff members by submitting a publishable piece of legal scholarship.[6] The outgoing managing board selects the next year's editors each spring, generally from among the current staff.[6]
