The Penn State Journal of Law & International Affairs (JLIA) is a digital, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, jointly published by Penn State's School of Law and School of International Affairs. The journal promotes academic and public discourse at the intersection of law and international affairs, featuring contributions in the areas of public and private international law, international relations, comparative law and politics, geography, economics, history, and policy issues in the various sciences. It is available online and indexed by LEXIS and Westlaw.
The journal’s most recent issue, published in November 2013, examines the U.S. Iranian relationship and the future of international order, and how the two state’s strategic choices will affect the international order in the future. The issue features contributions from Hillary Mann Leverett of American University’s School of International Service, Ambassador Richard Butler AC of Penn State's School of International Affairs, Daniel Joyner of the University of Alabama School of Law, Vice Admiral James Houck of Penn State's School of Law and School of International Affairs, Mary Ellen O’Connell of the University of Notre Dame Law School, Flynt Leverett of Penn State's School of International Affairs, and other distinguished scholars.

Each year, JLIA sponsors a number of lectures and symposia. Recent programs have included The U.S.-India Strategic Relationship in the 21st Century: Cross-Sector Collaboration to Promote Sustainable Development (with Dickinson College and the Strategic Studies Institute of the United States Army War College), Geographies of Powers: Justice, Revolution, and Cultural Imagination (with The Center for Global Studies (CGS) at Penn State University), and a year-long lecture series on the evolving national security narrative, which included contributions from Anne-Marie Slaughter, Harold Koh, P.J. Crowley, Ronald Deibert, Harold James, and other distinguished scholars and policymakers.
JLIA's next issue will examine the evolution and future of the role of international criminal justice in international relations, as well as the structural challenges facing the International Criminal Court in the coming decades.
JLIA's 2014 symposium is scheduled for February 7, 2014 and will explore the implications of global resource scarcity on future legal, agricultural and security environments. Registration and other details will be posted shortly.
