Of Columbia's 13 student-run journals, six self-identify, to varying degrees, as engaging with international issues and/or operating in the international community.
Their involvement ranges from participating in or sponsoring international conferences, symposia, or speaker series, to publishing individual articles, editions, or entirely devoting their journals to topics in international legal scholarship. The journals that announce international interests in their titles are not the only ones involved in this kind of work. For example: while the staff of the Journal of Transnational Law are obviously deeply invested in global scholarship and relationships, and devote a great deal of their time and resources to that end, the staff of the Journal of Gender and Law also publish work of international relevance and now have subscribers from the Constitutional Court of South Africa to Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.
The Columbia Law School journals that currently self-identify as being involved with international scholarship and issues are:
The journals exist through the work of devoted students who have to be not only law students, but also editors, writers, and sometimes translators, accountants, event planners, not-for-profit small business operators, scholars of international law outside of the classroom, and various other roles that become necessary in order for the journal to be produced. The majority of these journals' staff members seek out ongoing relationships abroad, through means as diverse as publishing articles from international authors, having non-U.S. members on their Boards of Directors, expanding international subscriptions, and seeking out and maintaining relationships with various educational institutions, legal offices, and publications.
