WASHINGTON, DC-The American Society of International Law (ASIL) announces the election of seven new members and the re-election of two existing members to its American Journal of International Law (AJIL) Board of Editors. Published quarterly by the Society since 1907, the Journal regularly features articles, editorials, and comments by preeminent scholars on developments in international law and international relations. It also includes analyses of decisions by courts and tribunals and reviews of recent books on international law. The periodical is considered by JSTOR, a widely-used digital library of thousands of academic journals, to be “the premier English-language scholarly journal in its field.”
