Welcome to the new ILRA Website
Posted by James Voelker, ILRA President, SMU Dedman School of Law
The International Law Review Association is excited to introduce our newly upgraded home on the Internet. We anticipate it will be a valuable tool as we pursue our mission of fostering the ongoing exploration international law.
As was the case with our previous website, our new website will primarily serve as a portal for accessing information regarding both of the journals we publish on a quarterly basis. We are proud to assist the ABA Section of International Law in publishing The International Lawyer--the second-most circulated legal journal in the world. We are also proud to publish the Law & Business Review of the Americas--a journal focused specifically on the emerging legal, economic, and political issues in the Western Hemisphere.
Through our new home, you'll be able to find information about subscribing to either publication, along with instructions and contact information for authors interested in submitting articles for publication in either journal.
We hope you'll take advantage of our new ILRA Forum news portal as well. Through this feature, we will post important announcements regarding news and events here at the ILRA and SMU Dedman School of Law. At the same time, we also hope to provide updates, summaries, notes, and other short features submitted by practioners, academics, and students on emerging topics of international law.
We hope you find our new website to be a helpful resource for an increasingly global community.
President, International Law Review Association
In a modern, technological society, the right to privacy often conflicts with freedom of speech and the free availability of information. This difficulty is greatly increased by the fact that society is increasingly becoming global while laws are mostly applicable to relatively small jurisdictions.
Global climate changed has been thrust upon the international community, and has established itself as one of the predominant challenges of the 21st century. Today, climate change has the potential to significantly disrupt economies, societies, and ecosystems worldwide.

Scholars often believe that democracy and Catholicism are incompatible. With the creation of the European Union, state-church relationships have become even more complex, and with the “modernizing” of society, the church has been forced to take a stand which sometimes contradicts the laws of the states and of the EU.
