In summer 2013, students, staff, and Humphrey Fellows at the University of Minnesota Law School launched the Minnesota Journal of International Law Humphrey Supplement. This supplement features articles from participants in the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program and is intended to serve as a showcase for scholarly work from parts of the world ignored in legal academia. By using our website for distribution, these articles can be accessed quickly and free of charge anywhere in the world.
As the Humphrey Supplement develops, we hope to draw on current and former Humphrey Fellows hosted at all institutions participating in the program. Over one hundred Humphrey Fellows participate in the program each year and have a wealth of knowledge and skills that can benefit activists throughout the world. The Humphrey Supplement is particularly interested in articles that showcase human rights from a practitioner’s point of view.
If you would like to contribute to the Humphrey Supplement, MJIL welcomes submissions from Humphrey Fellows, past and present. Submitted articles should range from 5,000 to 15,000 words and be well–cited. To conform to our editing cycle, article submissions must be received by October 31 in order to be considered for publication in spring/summer of the following year. Articles should be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
