The Columbia Journal of Asian Law
The Columbia Journal of Asian Law commenced publication in 1987 as the Columbia Journal of Chinese Law under the auspices of the Columbia University School of Law and the Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law. At that time, the journal provided a forum for legal practitioners and scholars from the People’s Republic of China, the United States, and elsewhere to discuss a broad range of issues relating to law in China. As Asia became increasingly integrated and legal issues increasingly cross-border in their impact, the Journal made the decision in 1996 to expand its geographical coverage to South, Southeast, and Northeast Asia, taking on its current name to reflect the expansion.
The journal publishes articles by scholars and practicing attorneys, as well as student-written notes. Professors Benjamin Liebman, Curtis Milhaupt, Jeong-Ho Roh, and Professor Emeritus R. Randle Edwards serve on the journal's Board of Advisors. The staff is selected from applications received at the end of the first year for J.D. candidates and at the end of the summer before the start of the academic year for transfer students and for LL.M. and other advanced-degree candidates.
