Submission Guidelines

The Pace International Law Review welcomes articles written by international legal scholars, university and law professors and members of the legal profession, involving all areas of international and comparative law. The decision to publish a submitted manuscript is determined by the editorial staff, and unpublished manuscripts will not be returned unless so requested by the author. All material accepted for publication becomes the property of the Pace International Law Review.

All manuscripts should be submitted in compliance with the following specifications:

  • Approximately 30 to 60 double-spaced pages.
  • Footnotes conforming to the Uniform System of Citation, at the bottom of each page.
  • Authors should also submit a current curriculum vitae which includes prior experience and a list of publications.

Volume 26 will include two bound editions: one focused on public international law, and another special edition dedicated solely to international commercial law. For our new international commercial edition, we are interested in topics including, but not limited to the following: international commercial arbitration, international alternative dispute resolution (including ODR), international sales law (including CISG), investment treaty arbitration, carriage of goods, and international commercial contracting.

We are currently accepting submissions on both editions, as well as our Online Companion.

If you have additional questions on submitting an article for publication, please contact the Editor-in-Chief or the Submissions Editor at pilr@law.pace.edu.
