The International Lawyer

The International Lawyer is the official triannual publication of the American Bar Association's Section of International Law. Prior to 2013, it was a quarterly publication that included a special Year in Review issue, which is now a separate annual publication known as The Year in Review.  The ABA published the inaugural issue of The International Lawyer 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 approximately 22,000 readers in more than 90 countries.  In an effort to satisfy its worldwide readership, this publication focuses primarily on practical issues of international law, including trade, licensing, direct investment, finance, taxation, litigation, and dispute resolution.

To help produce The International Lawyer, SMU’s student editorial board works in conjunction with the professional editorial board chaired by the Editor-in-Chief, Marc I. Steinberg, Rupert and Lillian Radford Professor of Law, SMU Dedman School of Law.  Patricia S. Heard and Beverly C. Duréus, also of the SMU Law School, serve as Co-Executive Editors.

The Year in Review
 

The Year in Review, previously included as an issue of The International Lawyer, is now its own annual publication of the American Bar Association's Section of International Law. It has had a place as a prestigious ABA publication since 1966 and has called SMU Dedman School of Law its home since 1986.

The Year in Review, as its name suggests, is an annual survey of the law from around the world.  On average, thirty to forty Committees of the ABA/SIL contribute to the publication and capture the germane legal developments, key pieces of legislation, and landmark decisions that help to shape the legal tapestry of their respective countries and areas of interest. Catering to the ABA/SIL membership and others, The YIR shares in the same readership as TIL, and is the most widely distributed U.S. international law survey in the world, enjoying subscriptions of approximately 22,000 readers in more than 90 countries. Submissions are made annually by Committee Editors on behalf of their respective ABA/SIL Committees.

To help produce The Year in Review, SMU’s student editorial board works in conjunction with the professional editorial board chaired by the Editor-in-Chief, Marc I. Steinberg, Rupert and Lillian Radford Professor of Law, SMU Dedman School of Law. Beverly C. Duréus and Patricia S. Heard, also of the SMU Law School, serve as Co-Executive Editors and interface with the ABA/SIL section membership, and Patrick Del Duca, the Publications Officer for the section. Co-General Editors-in-Chief, Professors Jason Palmer and Brooke Bowman, both of the Stetson University College of Law, lead a team of deputy editors who are also an integral part of the editing process.
