About Us

Duke Journal of Comparative and International Law is published each spring and fall. DJCIL is a very influential, specialized journal devoted exclusively to the issues of comparative and international law.

The journal was first established in 1990. Since its inception, DJCIL has become a well-known and widely cited legal periodical. The journal draws upon the law school’s prominent faculty and its JD/LLM Program in International and Comparative Law. Every year, the journal admits several international practitioners enrolled in the Duke LLM program as its staff editors.

The journal is edited by a student board and publishes articles from prominent international scholars and practitioners. Approximately one-third of the journal is devoted to student notes.
