JUS GENTIUM

Journal of International Legal History

JUS GENTIUM Journal of International Legal History is the first dedicated journal in the United States addressing the history of international law. Much current scholarship on the history of international law is preoccupied not with international law, but with international legal doctrine; the doctrinal writings of remarkably few individuals dominate the discourse while the rest remain unseen or overlooked. This journal will encourage further exploration in the archives, for new materials and confirmation of the accuracy of past uses, and welcomes the continued reassessment of international legal history in all of its dimensions.
