Global Business & Development Law Journal

The Pacific McGeorge Global Business & Development Law Journal (the “Globe”) is an organization of about 40 Pacific McGeorge students dedicated to furthering the legal scholarship of international law. The Pacific McGeorge Global Business and Development Law Journal is primarily focused on publishing high-quality articles centering on legal analysis and commentary of cutting-edge transnational issues. The Journal publishes yearly and is available in print as well as electronically through legal search engines such as LexisNexis and Westlaw.

The journal was founded in 1988 as The Transnational Lawyer (TTL) and played a central role in Pacific McGeorge’s commitment to building a comprehensive and diversified international curriculum. At that time, transnational law practice was void of legal scholarship and needed guidance. TTL provided a unique forum for practitioners, legal scholars, and academicians across the world to inform, share, and discuss transnational legal issues. In December 2005, The Transnational Lawyer changed its name to Pacific McGeorge Global Business and Development Law Journal. One reason for the title change was to reflect the parallel goals of the journal and the Center for Global Business & Development.

Today, the journal continues to highlight and analyze emerging issues in international law. Given the wide geographical diversification of the Pacific McGeorge’s international programs, the journal publishes relevant materials on – as well as from – different parts of the world. As transnational commerce and supranational organizations dissipate national borders, keeping pace with the latest international law developments will be increasingly important.

Manuscript Submission & Copyright Permission

If you would like to contribute to the forward-looking scholarship published within the Globe, you are in a growing group of legal scholars. Although many published articles originate in Pacific McGeorge symposia, you do not have to participate in these events in order to publish with this law journal.

The Pacific McGeorge Global Business & Development Law Journal expects that scholars will submit high-quality manuscripts with complete and correct citations, even if promised publication through Symposia participation. This ensures fair treatment to those authors who provide publishable works by avoiding unnecessary publication delays. Additionally, please use footnotes instead of endnotes. All footnotes should conform to the 18th edition of The Harvard Blue Book.

The Globe Articles Department prefers to receive manuscripts submitted for consideration in electronic form at its email address:

Hard copies of manuscript submissions should be sent to:
