The International Lawyer

The International Lawyer is the official quarterly publication of the American Bar Association's Section of International Law and Practice.   The ABA published the inaugural issue in 1966 and SMU has been the proud home of this prestigious journal since 1986.

Since then, The International Lawyer has grown to become the most widely distributed U.S. international law review in the world, enjoying subscriptions of over 15,000 readers in more than 75 countries.  In an effort to satisfy its worldwide readership, this publication focuses primarily on practical issues of international law, including international trade, licensing, direct investment, finance, taxation, litigation, and dispute resolution.

The student editorial board works in conjunction with the professional editorial board chaired by the Co-Editors-in-Chief,
Dean John Attanasio and Senior Associate Dean Marc Steinberg.
