About GJIL 

The Gonzaga Journal of International Law (GJIL) is a student-run, online legal journal with readers spanning the globe. The Journal includes articles, essays, comments, and notes from law professors, government officials, practicing attorneys, business professionals, and law students.

Founded in 1997, the Gonzaga Journal of International Law seeks to expand its influence beyond the pages of the Journal by actively addressing pertinent issues affecting the legal and political communities both in the United States and abroad. The Journal is equally committed to public service and holds events dedicated to public service each year. Our annual Symposium, which addresses various international legal, political, and social issues draws highly respected legal scholars from local, national, and international communities.
