The ILS is now accepting articles for publication in the Section’s seventh issue of its International Newsletter, which is scheduled to be published in January 2021.
Political change can often lead to changes in the law or how laws are enforced. Lawyers who practice internationally need to be particularly aware of how such political changes may impact their practice. Therefore, we would like to have this edition of the International Newsletter concentrate on the issues related to political change and its impact on the international practice of law. Any topic related to international legal issues is acceptable, but we would like to include articles related to the following topics:
- Issues related to immigration, particularly those relevant to recent or possible changes in political parties in power around the world.
- The impact on trade regulation and treaties due to changes in elected officials.
- Energy regulations related to agreements between oil producing countries to limit production and interruptions in continued trade for oil and gas in a time of political uncertainty and change.
- Impact of possible changes in course on regulations on political and policy matters that may result from efforts by countries to recover from the health and economic impact of COVID-19.
- International human rights issues including matters related to sanctions issued by governments for violations of international human rights norms.
Please consider writing an article or asking your colleagues to give it some consideration. The deadline for the submission of articles for the seventh issue is Friday, December 11, 2020.
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);
4. Include your name, email address, firm/company affiliation and city;
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
