Oregon Review of International Law

"Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion."
– G.W.F. Hegel

Welcome to the Oregon Review of International Law (ORIL), a student-run journal of the University of Oregon School of Law. ORIL publishes articles by academics, practitioners, and students that address current legal topics in international law and policy.

International law plays an increasingly significant role in domestic law, politics, and everyday life. An understanding and appreciation of international law is necessary for a complete understanding of the national legal landscape. As the volumes of international treaties continue to grow, ORIL seeks to publish timely articles that describe the legal aspects of these treaties and the responsibilities they impose on human rights, taxation, the environment, and a wide variety of other international legal topics.

We encourage you to explore our website and discover our engaging and timely articles written by respected authors from around the world. Please contact ORIL regarding submissions, subscriptions, comments, and questions.
