Va. J. Int’l L. - Virginia Journal of International Law (USA)


The original legal citation of the Virginia Journal of International Law; the contemporary citation being VJIL.

Student-edited journal of international law published at the University of Virginia law School.

The first name of the journal was Journal of the John Bassett Moore Society of International Law.

In the second volume, the lead editorial used these words:

"Some ten years ago, the John Bassett Moore Society of International Law was founded at Virginia. An indication of the success and growth of the Society and student interest in international affairs at the (University of Virginia Law School) is found in the fact that today membership includes over twenty-five percent of the student body. One year ago, a regular program of meetings, speakers and research projects was supplemented by the appearance of the Society's (Virginia Journal of International Law). In its inception, the Journal was a mimeographed publication, with circulation limited to Society members. Its success encouraged the editors to begin a new project — the national publication of a journal of international law, aimed at offering the law student a contemporary picture of international law, its opportunities and advantages, and its problems and limitations."

Now housed at the University of Virginia School of Law, Charlottesville, Virginia, the VJIL website is at: www.vjil.org.

The current publishers describe their journal as folllows:

"The Virginia Journal of International Law was founded in the spring of 1960 as the Journal of the John Bassett Moore Society of International Law. Originally named after one of Virginia Law's most distinguished alumni, the journal sought to offer the law student a contemporary picture of international law, its opportunities and advantages, and its problems and limitations.

"The Journal soon became its own entity and adopted its current name in 1963. In the fifty-one years since its founding, a number of leading scholars and international law practitioners have graced its pages with their ideas. Indeed, a recent study by the Washington & Lee School of Law showed that the Journal is the most-cited student-edited journal of international law today."
