About the Indiana International & Comparative Law Review

The Indiana International and Comparative Law Review is a student-edited law Journal devoted to the study and analysis of current international legal issues and events. Published continuously since 1991, the Review provides a specialized and unique format for students to take broad legal topics and shed an international and/or comparative light onto them. This often amounts to the proffering of views or propositions that are novel in a particular field and become influential going forward.

The Review is edited by second and third-year law students and typically publishes two general issues as well as a topic-specific Symposium Issue. Each general issue contains articles written by professors, judges, legal practitioners, or other experts in a particular field. Additionally, the general issues contain Notes drafted by Student Note Candidates during their first year on the Review.

The Review has previously published articles written by well-respected authors including:

  • Frank Sullivan, Jr., Former Justice on the Indiana Supreme Court
  • Giuliano Amato, Former Prime Minister of Italy
  • Mahmoud Cherif Bassiouni, United Nations War Crimes Expert, Dubbed “The Godfather of International Criminal Law”
