Recent Developments

The Emory International Law Review's new Recent Developments section highlights new and emerging issues in the international law landscape. These shorter pieces tackle current topics, and EILR posts them online immediately after our editing process. They are then compiled with the rest of the Articles and Comments in our printed issues. To submit a Recent Development for publication, please see our Submissions page. Submissions for this section should be 5,000-7,000 words long, not including footnotes and should address a current international legal issue.
