Students must compete in the GW Law journal competition in order to apply for membership with the International Law in Domestic Courts Journal. ILDC will consider overall grades, legal research and writing grades, writing competition score, your resume, and a statement of interest. Although the specific weight given to each of these factors will be determined by the incoming editorial board, in past years editors have relied heavily on the statement of interest in selecting new members. Demonstration of a strong interest in international law may also be considered in membership selection. A candidate’s ranking of ILDC will also be considered.
