International Newsletter

Deadline Extended: December 31, 2023

Submission Guidelines

The International Law Section (ILS) is now accepting articles for publication in the Section’s eleventh issue of its International Newsletter, which is scheduled to be published in January 2024.

For this issue, we are seeking articles highlighting emerging issues in international law.  We are interested in articles on topics that you personally find interesting and timely.  While we welcome topics impacting the Texas business and legal communities, we have realized that if one of our members thinks something is worth discussing, others will find it interesting and want to hear about it.

Any topic related to international legal issues will be considered, and here are some ideas to prompt your inspiration:

  • Cross-border legal frameworks governing the use of artificial intelligence.
  • New developments in trade law.
  • Efforts to tackle global warming through international organizations.
  • International developments in intellectual property protections.
  • Legal regimes impacting supply chains for emerging technologies.
  • International legal frameworks in the pharmaceutical industry.
  • Recent developments at the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
  • New systems for risk mitigation and compliance by energy and technology sector participants.
  • Recent developments in international arbitration of oil and gas disputes.

Please consider writing an article or asking your colleagues to give it some consideration. The extended deadline for the submission of articles for the issue is Sunday, December 31, 2023.

All articles submitted should:

  • Be between 500 to 2,500 words, although longer copy may be considered;
  • Be submitted in MS Word format and double spaced;
  • Acknowledge all sources, but keep endnotes to a minimum (use numbers, not numerals);
  • Include your name, email address, firm/company affiliation, and city;
  • Include a brief synopsis of the article of no more than 50 words;
  • Include a short “about the author” summary about you and your practice; and
  • Provide an image suggestion using key words or topical direction.

Please submit your article by email to Joshua Newcomer, Editor-in-Chief, and Richard Munoz, Chair, International Law Section,
