The Cardozo International & Comparative Law Review (CICLR), formerly known as the International Comparative, Policy & Ethics Law Review (ICPELR) was created in the spring of 2017 as a result of a merger between the Cardozo Journal of International and Comparative Law (CJICL) and the Cardozo Public Law, Policy, and Ethics Journal (CPLPEJ). CJICL was ranked 5th in comparative law, and CPLPEJ was ranked 5th in ethics.
CICLR seeks to give an in-depth detailed analysis of different legal issues faced by both the United States and the International Community particularly focusing on issues affecting public policy and ethics. By comparing the methods used by different nations, states and entities to solve legal issues, CICLR evaluates and proposes uniquely insightful solutions to complicated legal problems. Additionally, CICLR reviews issues of public policy which are both purely domestic or international in focus, utilizing the expertise of legal minds worldwide to provide detailed commentary.
CICLR publishes a diverse range of articles and student notes on a variety of critical topics, including, but not limited to: corporate law, intellectual property, human rights, securities law, constitutional law, policy implications of governmental actions, public interest advocacy, and ethical considerations facing attorneys and the public at large. Recent articles have covered topics such as: border walls, immigration, and transnationalism; penal punishments for drug-related crimes in China; and gender and race discrimination in tort trials. Topics of recent student notes include: modernizing financial regulatory systems; international digital privacy rights; the effects of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act on Netflix users; and the effects of anti-trust laws on the NFL’s efforts to expand internationally.
