About This Journal
Throughout its history, South Carolina has been significantly influenced by trends in international business. Legal and regulatory frameworks have evolved with changes in the global economy, impacting both South Carolina's industry and its citizens. From its early beginnings as a major producer of rice and indigo, to registering some of the highest levels of foreign investment per capita in the United States, South Carolina has always had an integral stake in the evolution of commerce, both at home and abroad.
Founded in 2003, the South Carolina Journal of International Law and Business seeks to serve South Carolinians by creating a forum for discussion about how international law and business affect the state. The journal also prepares its members for practice by providing practical, analytical, and legal writing experience.
In addition to the semi-annual journal, SCJILB engages professionals and scholars through its biennial symposia. The Journal seeks engagement across all disciplines, through interaction with the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business, recognized for its International Business curricula, and through the Law and Finance Institutional Partnership.
