Additional Information for Columbia Journal of Transnational Law
Fifty years ago, under the guidance of the late Professor Wolfgang Friedmann, a group of Columbia law students belonging to the Columbia Society of International Law founded the Bulletin of the Columbia Society of International Law. The Bulletin’s first volume, containing two issues, was a forum for the informal discussion of international legal questions; the second volume, published in 1963 under the title International Law Bulletin, aspired more to the tradition of the scholarly law review. Today’s Columbia Journal of Transnational Law is heir to those early efforts.
The Journal’s readership has grown dramatically over the years. Today, approximately 1000 subscribers in more than sixty countries receive the Journal. Subscribers include the large university libraries in the United States and abroad, the major international law firms, many foreign governments, their agencies, their embassies, and many organizations affiliated with the United Nations.
As the Journal enters its next fifty years, the Board of Editors hopes that succeeding generations of editors will advance the Journal beyond its achievements of the last fifty years. Rigorous, timely and wide-ranging discussions of transnational legal issues will continue to be useful to legal scholars and practicing lawyers and policymakers. Our hope is that the Journal will share in and continue to enliven those discussions.
