The GroJIL is a not-for-profit, open access electronic journal. It is led and edited by students at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. It seeks to advocate an outlook where legal change, rather than legal description, is at the forefront. Consequently, we particularly welcome submissions that use innovative methods and/or suggest new solutions to overcome the contemporary issues facing international law.


The Journal is open to all contributions on international law and particularly interested in receiving articles that specifically focus on how international law should engage with emerging challenges.


The Editorial Board will select the articles after a quality of research and writing check, as well as according to the relevance of the topic. It also undertakes the responsibility of reviewing the articles as regards both language and formatting. The word limit for accepted articles is 12,000 words.
