Publication Title

The Yale Journal of International Law


With due respect to the Agoras and Peripatetics, a "school of thought" imports more than a venue. It means a community of scholars who identify as such, share common ideas about social process, a common sense of mission about that social process, and a common methodology. At the recently concluded Fifth Annual Young Scholars Conference of The Yale Journal of International Law, it became clear that some of the presenters and others in attendance were open to the idea that their work might benefit from greater familiarity with-and even study of-what has come to be known as the New Haven School.
