How to Submit an Article to the ABA International Law News -- Upcoming Issues on Climate Change, Cross-Border Real Estate, and Outsourcing Legal Services
The flagship newsletter of the American Bar Association Section of International Law is the International Law News. It is distributed in print and electronically to more than 23,000 members of the ABA Section of International Law, so your work gets a wide readership of lawyers and law students from around the world.
The Managing Editor of the International Law News is Angela Gwizdala, who can be contacted by email at this address: iln [at] staff.abanet.org. (substitute an @ for the [at])
The theme of the next issue of the ILN is Climate Change. Articles on this subject (and other articles on international law not related to that theme) are due by March 23, 2010. Articles should not have footnotes or endnotes and should be less than 4,000 words. Much less actually. Go for 1,500 to 2,000 words and you have a better shot at being published.
Cross-Border Real Estate Transactions (for the Fall 2010 issue, article deadline June 21, 2010)
Outsourcing Legal Services (for the Winter 2011 issue, article deadline September 20, 2010).
Membership in the ABA Section of Intenational Law is not limited to U.S. lawyers and law students -- you can join from anywhere in the world. The section's Spring Meeting (in New York) and Fall Meeting (in Paris) are especially good reasons to join as well.
