Established in 1967, the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law is one of the world’s most prominent and widely cited legal journals devoted to current and emerging issues of comparative and international law.
The Journal, a student-edited publication, annually publishes five issues containing articles written by prominent international law scholars and legal practitioners. The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law is an integral part of the intellectual life at Vanderbilt Law School. The Journal hosts a biennial symposium on current issues in international and comparative law. Recent symposia have drawn participants from around the world to discuss topics such as foreign state immunity, international law and the arctic, and transborder trusts and estates.
