International Legal Materials

Published on a bimonthly basis since 1962, International Legal Materials reproduces primary international legal documents reflecting the broad scope and evolution of international law. Materials are selected by the Committee and its Attorney-Editor based on their usefulness to scholars, practitioners, and government and international officials. Each issue contains the full texts, together with prefatory notes, of important treaties and agreements, judicial and arbitral decisions, national legislation, international organizations resolutions, and other documents.

The American Society of International Law welcomes applications for two openings on the Editorial Advisory Committee (the Committee) for International Legal Materials (ILM).

The Committee is chaired by the Executive Director of the Society, and meets every two months at the Society’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Committee members are elected by the Executive Council of the Society for up to two three-year terms. They are expected to actively engage in the work of the Committee and to participate in at least four of the six committee meetings each year.

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply by sending a curriculum vitae and a brief expression of interest to Justine Stefanelli, Director of Publications and Research, at, by February 10, 2020.
