The Touro International Law Review (ILR) welcomes unsolicited articles for both its "essay" article format and the more traditional law review article format. Articles may be on any international law topic.

For Short Timely Essays

The ILR accepts submissions for essays and responses on a rolling basis year round. Essays should be approximately 1,000-3,000 words, with a limited, yet sufficient, amount of footnoting. The ILR will make every attempt to post your essay or response within four weeks of the acceptance date to ensure its relevance in the fast changing climate of international law and current events. In order to meet this expedited publication schedule, authors will be expected to review and respond to editorial revisions within three days of receipt and to participate in the editorial process via e-mail.

For Traditional Law Review Articles, Book Reviews, Notes, and Comments

The ILR also accepts traditional law review articles and book reviews from professors and practitioners as well as notes and comments from law students. These are reviewed on a rolling basis from August through February and will be published in May.

Submission Policies

All submissions to the ILR must be in English. We ask that they please conform to the most recent edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. Please include an e-mail address and phone number that we may use to contact you during the editing process. All submissions become property of the ILR and will not be returned.

Submissions can be sent to us electronically by e-mail to or via ExpressO. Hard copies, with an electronic copy on 3.5 in floppy disk or CD, may be sent to:

Touro Law Center
