VJIL Online publishes Essays that are punchy, topical, lightly-footnoted, and time-sensitive. Essays range from 2,500 to 7,000 words and receive expedited review. We also publish Case Comments on U.S. cases with international implications and Responses to other Essays or Print Articles. Scholarship published in 2019-20 will be cited as “5 Va. J. Int’l L. Online.”
Please follow the same submission guidelines as you would follow for an Article, except email your submissions to the Online Development Editor.
We will publish three to four Essays on the topic of our 2019-20 Symposium, which will take place in February of 2020. Authors will be invited to speak at the Symposium as part of an author’s panel. Once we pick the Symposium topic in June of 2019, we will post a call for papers here.
