1. International Trade Law & Regulation (Int. T.L.R.) is a quarterly international journal providing topical analysis on key debates and developments in both public and private aspects of international trade and investment law. It features in-depth articles on topics of interest, shorter opinion pieces on recent developments and emerging issues, and book reviews of recent publications in the field.
All contributions must be in English and contributors should supply their full contact details, including email address, for further correspondence. Please include an abstract of no more than 50 words, describing the contents of the contribution. This abstract will appear on the contents page of Int. T.L.R.
The authors of accepted contributions will receive two complimentary copies of the journal in which their paper appears.
Contributions are welcome under the following headings:
Articles should analyse a major, current theme of international interest in the field.

Articles should be between 5,000–8,000 words, though shorter or longer contributions may be considered.
