Additional Information: The Pacific McGeorge Global Business & Development Law Journal (the â€œGlobeâ€) is an organization of about 40 Pacific McGeorge students dedicated to furthering the legal scholarship of international law. The Pacific McGeorge Global Business and Development Law Journal is primarily focused on publishing high-quality articles centering on legal analysis and commentary of cutting-edge transnational issues. The Journal publishes yearly and is available in print as well as electronically.
The journal was founded in 1988 as The Transnational Lawyer (TTL) and played a central role in Pacific McGeorgeâ€™s commitment to building a comprehensive and diversified international curriculum. At that time, transnational law practice was void of legal scholarship and needed guidance. TTL provided a unique forum for practitioners, legal scholars, and academicians across the world to inform, share, and discuss transnational legal issues. In December 2005, The Transnational Lawyer changed its name to Pacific McGeorge Global Business and Development Law Journal. One reason for the title change was to reflect the parallel goals of the journal and the Center for Global Business & Development.
Today, the journal continues to highlight and analyze emerging issues in international law. Given the wide geographical diversification of the Pacific McGeorgeâ€™s international programs, the journal publishes relevant materials on â€“ as well as from â€“ different parts of the world. As transnational commerce and supranational organizations dissipate national borders, keeping pace with the latest international law developments will be increasingly important.
