Fordham International Law Journal

The Fordham International Law Journal is a student-run law journal associated with the Fordham University School of Law. According to the Washington and Lee journal rankings, it is the 8th most cited student-edited international and comparative law journal in the United States.[1]


The Fordham International Law Journal was established in 1977 at the Fordham University School of Law.[2] It was founded at that time as the Fordham International Law Forum.[3] The ILJ attracts contributions from prominent statespersons and members of the academic, legal, and political communities. ILJ pieces have been cited in numerous US federal court decisions, US Supreme Court briefs and decisions,[4] international courts decisions, law review articles, and CFR and ALR annotations.[5]

The ILJ publishes six books annually covering diverse foreign and international legal topics and containing scholarly articles, essays, book reviews, and student pieces. The ILJ also publishes an annual Crowley Report in association with Fordham’s Leitner Center for International Law and Justice.[6] The ILJ assists in the organization and production of the Fordham Corporate Law Institute's Conference on International Antitrust Law and Policy, the Leitner/Stein Colloquium, and the New York City Bar Association's reception for the legal advisers of the foreign ministries of the United Nations. The ILJ maintains an especially strong relationship with officials from the European Union and one book in each volume is devoted to EU law. Past volumes have included contributions from judges on the European Court of Justice, commissioners of the European Commission, and other senior EU officials.[7]
