Volume 2 : Number 1 | Summer 2021

Journal of International Law and Comity (JILC) is published by Weeramantry Centre for Peace, Justice and International Law, which was established as a matter of tribute to late Professor Judge H.E. Christopher Weeramantry. It is a double peer-reviewed, open access, biannual e-journal premised on the principle that scholarship should be generated on high ideals of positive change in addition to regular considerations regarding professional growth and public visibility.

With Advisory Board members steering us from across the globe, we are pleased to invite submissions for our forthcoming Issue. Contributions that engage with pressing issues of human rights, environment, disarmament, peace, justice, and equity in international law are particularly welcome. Authors are free to explore any area or aspect of international law, provided it has a significant human or non-human impact. Those who do not come from a law background but intend to write on something ancillary to international law, are also invited to contribute after getting in touch with the Editor through email and sharing broad outlines of the proposal.   

General Guidelines:


  1. Article (5000-7500 words including footnotes)
  2. Case Note (3500-4000 words including footnotes)
  3. Book Review (1000-1200 words, footnotes only where necessary)

All manuscripts must be original and unpublished.

Co-authorship is allowed.

After the first publication in JILC, permission must be obtained for any subsequent publication.
