UW School of Law > Journal Home

The Pacific Rim Law & Policy Journal is published three times a year by students of the University of Washington School of Law. This peer reviewed Journal features analysis of legal issues and developments in jurisdictions bordering the Pacific Ocean, including Asia, Oceania, and South American countries.

We welcome the submission of articles involving issues of domestic law in a Pacific Rim nation or an issue of international or comparative law relating to one or more Pacific Rim nations. We also welcome the submission of English translations of Asian language legal sources and scholarship. The Journal is available in both print and online.
