Berkeley's International Law Blog
All submissions from contributors must be timely
For example, while an application of legal theory to a current international
event or policy is great, a general overview of a legal or political
theory is not appropriate for the blog. That does not mean historically
situated pieces don’t qualify! We just want to make sure they are engaging
and relevant. If you are not sure if your piece is right, just ask!
As a general rule, posts must be more than simply explanatory pieces. They
should contain a central thesis.
Exception for pieces that aim to clarify an event, policy, or other
internationally significant matter that has produced confusion or
misunderstanding. These pieces should aim to avoid one-sided accounts.
Formatting and Grammar Requirements
Submissions should be roughly between 700-1,200 words.
Submissions should be formatted as doc or docx so that editors can provide easy
feedback and edits.
Include a title and sub-headings as necessary.
All claims must be supported by hyperlinks, not footnotes.
The blog follows the Chicago Manual of Style. While editors are happy to correct
grammar errors and formatting issues, pieces submitted that have many
careless errors will be returned to authors for proofreading before consideration.
Please submit a short bio (a few sentences) to be included with the piece.
