Writings that appear in the Journal are regularly cited by academics, practitioners and courts, including the United States Supreme Court. Recent surveys of prominent international law faculty have placed the Journal in the highest tier of international law journals, alongside its peer publications at Harvard and Yale. Each year the Journal publishes three issues, which contain articles by legal scholars and practitioners, student notes, book reviews and bibliographic materials.
