Welcome to the home of the NYU Journal of International Law and Politics (JILP). This scholar-run publication is devoted to commentary on modern points in worldwide and comparative regulation.
It will introduce college students to a variety of theoretical frameworks via which to know and critically consider international law historically and in context. It will provide students with information and understanding of the origins and development of international law and of its key ideas, rules and guidelines. The module will allow students to consider the relevance, or otherwise, of international law to up to date worldwide issues and to critically assess its limitations and effects.
