My co-authors and I are close to signing off on our manuscript analyzing the WTO Seal Products rulings. Coming from the very happy Howse/Langille experience with the Yale Journal of International Law, I think we will again submit to the US student-edited law journals-also the nature of the piece. But if you have a thoughtful essay or review, please consider the London Review of International Law.
It is a publication that is finding its way, but-going hand in hand with that-there is an intellectual excitement happening. Take a look at, for example a piece in the current issue on the Hannah Arendt film.
Now for the disclosure:I am an advisory editor of the journal-that's the biased part.
A plus of the London Review is that one of the principal editors is a leading scholar of International economic law, Andrew Lang. It is also relatively young in its leadership. I am not talking about chronological age necessarily-but relative freedom from the old guard. EJIL is heavily controlled from the top-with a relatively large percentage of pieces apparently commissioned for symposia etc. With any luck the London Review will blend its openness with a sense of mission, but one that is not too controlling. I am optimistic. My next piece is theirs...
