Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law

Article Title

Editor's Foreword

First Page



The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law is a new undertaking at Vanderbilt Law School. The Journal is an outgrowth of the predecessor publication, The Vanderbilt International, which was established in 1967 as a bulletin of the Vanderbilt International Law Society. A number of factors, including increased student enrollment at the Law School and a growing awareness of global activities and problems, have facilitated the Journal's evolution into its present, expanded format. It is indeed appropriate that the lead article of the new publication should be authored by Judge Philip C. Jessup, who has long been the foremost advocate in the United States of an interdisciplinary approach to "transnational law," i.e., all law, both public and private, which regulates actions that transcend national frontiers.
