The Suffolk Transnational Law Review is one of the oldest international law journals in the country and serves as a forum to discuss and examine contemporary international legal issues. Since its inception in 1976, Transnational has emerged as a nationally and internationally recognized publication. Practicing attorneys, universities, law schools, and libraries around the world subscribe to the journal. Transnational thrives in its unique role as both a prestigious Honor Board and a complement to Suffolk University Law School's distinguished international law faculty and international law organizations.
Transnational is entirely student organized and operated. Each year, Transnational publishes one volume, which consists of three books, one in the winter and summer, as well as a symposium book. Each book consists of lead articles authored by noted legal scholars and staff members' works. Transnational also hosts distinguished speakers and symposiums on international law, as well as an annual international moot court competition.
Staff members in their first year on Transnational write Notes, Book Reviews, or Case Comments. A Note is an in-depth legal analysis of an international legal issue. A Book Review examines recent publications addressing areas of international law. A Case Comment studies a recent international law decision in detail and analyzes the context of the holding and the decision's potential impact. Transnational's Editorial Board is comprised of members in their second year with Transnational who supervise and edit staff members' works and facilitate the development of staff members' research, writing, and analytical skills. The Executive Board is comprised of ten students in their second year with Transnational who manage and direct the operations of the journal.
