Deadline for Articles: Wednesday, November 27, 2019
Submission Guidelines
Dear Members:
The ILS is now accepting articles for publication in the Section’s fifth issue of its International Newsletter, which is scheduled to be published in January 2020.
Because we are focusing on Canada as our country of interest this year, articles about Canadian legal issues will be given a high priority. Any topic related to international legal issues is acceptable, but we would like to include articles related to the following topics:
  1. Issues related to immigration, particularly those relevant to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
  2. Trade regulation and treaties, including current trade matters involving Canada, Mexico, and the U.S., sanctions compliance, and CFIUS.
  3. Healthcare regulations as they relate to cross-border business in direct care and pharmaceuticals.
  4. Energy regulations, particularly those in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. and how they impact trade and cross-border business.
  5. Impact of possible changes in political and policy matters that may result from elections in Canada and the U.S.
  6. The legal marijuana business and law related to the same as it may impact investments by U.S. businesses or private equity in other countries including Canada.
  7. International human rights issues including matters related to the impact of international projects on indigenous people in Canada and Mexico.
Please consider writing an article or asking your colleagues to give it some consideration. The deadline for the submission of articles for the fifth issue is Wednesday, November 27, 2019 .   
All articles submitted should:
  1. Be between 500 to 2,500 words, although longer copy may be considered;
  2. Be submitted in MS Word format and double spaced;
  3. Acknowledge all sources, but keep endnotes to a minimum (use numbers not numerals);

  5. Include a brief synopsis of the article of no more than 50 words;
  6. Include a short “about the author” summary about you and your practice; and
