In this pod cast, Shannon Haley of the Class of 2008 and Editor-in-Chief of the Brooklyn Journal of International Law, talks about her experience as a member and editor of the journal. BJIL began publication in 1975 and usually publishes three issues each year with articles on both public and private international law by authors from academia, government service and private practice. In addition to her own student note, A Shot Across the Bow: Changing the Paradigm of Foreign Direct Investment Review in the United States, 32 Brook. J. Intl L. 1157 (2006-2007), Shannon addresses the impact of the BJIL symposia issues on the scholarly reputation of Brooklyn Law School. She also discusses the journal competition process and the upcoming year when Laura Scully will be the new Editor-in-Chief.
