Tips for Brooklyn Law School (BLS) Students: Check Tables of Contents @ BrooklynWorks: Brooklyn Journal of International Law + Leverage Free Student Memberships in Bar Associations & ASIL

  • Tip for BLS students seeking to publish in Brooklyn Journal of International Law (BJIL): Check tables of contents of recently published BJIL volumes at BrooklynWorks: Brooklyn Journal of International Law + list of forthcoming BJIL articles/notes that BJIL editors can provide to you, because you cannot analyze the same law/legal issues.
  • Tips for all BLS students interested in international law:
    • American Bar Association (ABA) law student membership is free.  A law student can join five free ABA groups, for example: International Law Section.  This likely will increase a law student's access to: this Section's news, brief articles published in International Lawyer, and webinars.
      • In July 2024: International Law Section's International Legal Developments Year in Review 2023 should become available to Section members here.
    • American Society of International Law (ASIL) student membership is free for BLS students because BLS is an ASIL Academic Partner.  BLS students also can access career development resources (including a job board) and can register for free to attend ASIL's Midyear Meeting.  ASIL's student membership page states: "Students from Academic Partner Schools will have the opportunity to obtain a Discount Promo Code during the process of joining or renewing membership with the Society."
      • TIP: Click here to access recordings from many of ASIL's 2024 Annual Meeting programs.  Click the "+" to the far right of: Audio Content to view the program list/link to audio recordings.  These program recordings could yield paper and note topic ideas. 
    • New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) law student membership also is free.  It includes the opportunity to join practice-focused NYSBA Sections, for example: International Section.  This likely will increase a law student's access to this Section's articles, webinars and additional resources.
