The American Review of International Arbitration is a quarterly law review that publishes scholarly articles, commentaries on recent developments, case notes, and other materials relating to international commercial arbitration. It is the only publication of its kind in the United States, and also one of the leading publications in the field internationally. International commercial arbitration itself is a practice area of significant, ever-increasing importance due to the need for resolving commercial disputes in the expanding global economy.
ARIA student editors will gain familiarity with international commercial arbitration as they complete the journal's requirements for cite-checking, editing and proof-reading. Most importantly, we encourage our students to write a student note. ARIA offers its student editors the opportunity to be directly supervised in their work by a managing editor who is an experienced lawyer. ARIA also offers to its student editors the possibility of serving as Senior Student Editors during the third year of law school.
