Introductory Letter to Volume 36

Article excerpt

Since 1966 the students running The George Washington International Law Review have invested their time and effort in publishing a high quality law review.

Talented authors like those selected for publication in this law review might seek to make their work available though other venues, but the pedigree of each piece published in our law review is grounded not only in the uniqueness of the author's approach to questions of international significance, but in the diligent effort that our staff invests in editing and preparing these works for publication. …
