International Trade Law & Regulation is a leading quarterly international law journal published in the UK by Sweet & Maxwell and co-edited by two members of the City Law School’s academic staff.

It features:
- In-depth analytical articles by leading academics, practitioners and policy makers
- Shorter opinion pieces on recent developments and emerging issues
- Book reviews of recent publications in the field
