The Journal’s goal is to provide a widely-read and valuable tool for the legal profession with interesting and on-point articles and with accurate and up-to-date comparative information about the most recent publications surrounding environmental law.

The Immigration and Nationality Law Review (INLR) is a nationally recognized annual journal published by William S. Hein & Co. Created in 1981, the Review was originally a reprint journal, republishing the best law review articles on immigration and nationality as well as legislative summaries and a included limited number of original contributions from immigration scholars. While primarily focused on immigration law, which seeks to define who may enter and reside in a country, the INLR incorporates subject matter well beyond immigration. In particular, the INLR addresses issues of nationality, which considers the formal relationship between a citizen of a nation and the nation itself. Since immigration and nationality work together to delineate citizenship and residency, they play an important part in the ongoing dialogue regarding national identity. Moreover, immigration and nationality frequently implicate issues regarding race, gender and class. For several years, various immigration scholars were responsible for editing the INLR.

In 1998, the INLR moved from the Western New England College of Law to its current home at the University of Cincinnati College of Law. The Review has substantially expanded to include student casenotes, comments, book reviews, and essays. Second and third year law students are responsible for coordinating the production of the Review under the guidance of Emily Houh, the INLR’s faculty advisor.

In order to achieve this aim, it publishes articles on all aspects of comparative law, in all geographical areas of the world, and encourages analytical (rather than purely descriptive) work with a contextual, theoretical and interdisciplinary approach. Due weight is given to the practical aspects of comparative legal studies in a globalised world.

Jus Gentium: Journal of International Legal History is the first dedicated journal in the United States addressing the history of international law. Much of modern scholarship on the history of international law is preoccupied not with international law, but with international legal doctrine; the doctrinal writings of remarkably few individuals dominate the discourse while the rest remain unseen or overlooked. This journal will encourage further exploration in the archives, for new materials and confirmation of the accuracy of past uses, but welcoming the continued reassessment of international legal history in all of its dimensions.
