The International Comparative, Policy & Ethics Law Review (ICPELR) was created in the spring of 2017 as a result of a merger between the Cardozo Journal of International and Comparative Law (CJICL) and the Cardozo Public Law, Policy, and Ethics Journal (CPLPEJ). CJICL was ranked 5th in comparative law, and CPLPEJ was ranked 5th in ethics. 

ICPELR publishes a diverse range of articles, case comments, and student notes on a variety of critical topics, including, but not limited to: corporate law, intellectual property, human rights, securities law, constitutional law, policy implications of governmental actions, public interest advocacy, and ethical considerations facing attorneys and the public at large. Recent articles have covered topics such as: border walls, immigration, and transnationalism; penal punishments for drug-related crimes in China; and gender and race discrimination in tort trials. Topics of recent student notes include: modernizing financial regulatory systems; international digital privacy rights; the effects of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act on Netflix users; and the effects of anti-trust laws on the NFL’s efforts to expand internationally.

ICPELR sponsors two annual symposiums to address current and groundbreaking legal developments. The fall 2017 symposium featured a prominent privacy attorney who discussed newly-implemented privacy regulations in the EU. The spring 2018 symposium featured partners from elite intellectual property practice groups, who discussed intellectual property in the digital age.
