The Duke Journal of Comparative & International Law (“DJCIL”) publishes original scholarship on international, transnational and comparative law matters. DJCIL welcomes submissions from professors and practitioners. At this time, DJCIL does not accept submissions from non-Duke Law students.
DJCIL generally only reviews articles between February and April of each year for the next issue. Please note that we will likely not be able to review your piece outside of this window. If you are looking to be considered within our editing process, you should aim to submit manuscripts between December and March, as offers of publication are made on a rolling basis.
DJCIL will make every effort to expedite review in light of deadlines imposed by other journal(s) that have accepted a piece. Please note that outside of February – April, we will likely not be able to honor these requests, as we are not selecting articles during the other months. Please submit expedite requests via Scholastica.
Please provide the following information in your correspondence:
DJCIL’s Staff Editors and Articles Editors carefully review each submission and, upon their recommendation, the Editor-in-Chief makes a final decision regarding publication. Once an article is selected, the Editor-in-Chief contacts the author with a contract and further information on the publication process. We publish in December of the year that articles are selected and in the following May.
We look forward to reviewing your submissions.
