JIEL Junior Faculty Forum for International Economic Law (IEL‐Forum)

The Journal of International Economic Law is delighted to announce the second annual IEL‐Forum for Junior Scholars. The IEL‐Forum aims at bringing together early career scholars (including junior faculty, visiting assistant professors, PhD candidates, post‐doctoral fellows, etc.) working in the field of international economic law. The purpose is to allow scholars to present their work before an audience of peers and experts and receive feedback from senior scholars. In addition, at least one piece will receive an offer of publication to appear in the 26th volume of the Journal of International Economic Law— the leading publication in the field.

Rules and Format

We welcome applications from early career scholars teaching in law faculties or other schools such as in economics, political science, history or international relations. The Forum welcomes submissions covering a wide range of international economic law topics – trade, investment, finance, tax, labor, intellectual property, data, and other topics reflective of the broad nature of the field. Scholars who have previously presented in the IEL‐Forum are not eligible to apply.

At the IEL‐Forum, up to six successful applicants will present their work; for each paper, a senior scholar will provide a response followed by general discussion by the entire Forum. The intention is to create a process of sustained exchange and feedback that can help to improve the piece.
