The German Law Journal at Washington and Lee University School of Law is a pioneering, online and open-access journal reporting on developments in German, European, and International jurisprudence. Now in its third decade publishing, the German Law Journal (GLJ) is one of the most successful and innovative fora for legal scholarship from a transnational perspective.

Currently, the Journal is ranked number one in the world by Google Scholar in the categories of International Law and European Law. Further evidence of its impact comes from the W&L Law Library’s journal rankings system, which places the GLJ at the top of list of journals focused on European Law.

Russell Miller, J.B. Stombock Professor of Law, co-founded the GLJ more than 20 years ago as one of the first open-access, fully-online forums for legal scholarship. During much of that time span, W&L Law students have assisted with the editing and administration of the Journal. Miller credits this student engagement with helping the GLJ become a top platform for international legal scholarship.
