Loyola University Chicago’s International Law Review (ILR) invites legal scholars and practitioners to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication in the Winter 2023 issue, 20(1) Loy. U. Chi. Int’l L. Rev. Below, we describe the issue’s thematic scope and the submission procedure.

In this issue, submissions may address the Spring 2024 Symposium topic of “Space, Data & Policy: Modern Approaches and Future Impacts”. Through this topic, we hope to explore international perspectives and implications of topics including space, airspace, security regulations, and data privacy. Topics relating to maritime law are welcomed. While other topics surrounding the idea of security regulations and data privacy may be considered, preference will be given to articles addressing the above-described topics. 

If you are interested, please submit your relevant manuscript and current resume/curriculum vitae (including contact information) through Scholastica or to We are only considering authors who have a JD or equivalent degree (Please note: We are unable to consider work from students currently enrolled in JD or equivalent programs). Each submission must be between 30-45 pages, double-spaced, in Times New Roman, with 1” margins, and contain more than 100 citations. The deadline for submissions is July 15, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. (US CST), and we anticipate communicating our decisions by the beginning of August 2023.
