YJIL Forum

YJIL Forum is a new platform for law students, practitioners, and legal scholars to publish timely, thoughtful pieces on recent developments in international law. The main goal of YJIL Forum is to foster a dynamic exchange between members of the international law community. Forum pieces are shorter and published more frequently than our Features Essays, allowing our readers to engage with a greater number of topical issues together.
