To all students – for information

The Goettingen Journal of International Law (GoJIL) is dedicating its 11th Student Essay Competition to the topic International Law in Times of a Pandemic.

The GoJIL is a student-led academic law journal focussed on international law. We seek to foster debate among scholars and students of international law as well as neighbouring fields. The journal is committed to the highest scientific standards, including a double-blind-peer-review, and open access principles, to ensure free and qualitative research.

This call is forwarded to universities worldwide, to ensure again a diverse number of candidates and offering students at your faculty a valuable opportunity to participate in the scientific discourse. The winning submission will be published in an upcoming issue of the GoJIL along with articles of renowned scholars of international law. This Essay Competition is open to students (including doctoral students). For graduated scholars and professors, we offer an open call for papers.

We would like to ask you to make this call available to the highest number of potential participants.
