Opinio Juris was the world’s first blog dedicated to the informed discussion of international law by and among academics, practitioners and legal experts. The blog was founded in 2005 by three legal scholars: Chris Borgen (St. John’s University); Peggy McGuinness (St. John’s University); and Julian Ku (Hofstra). Kevin Jon Heller (University of Copenhagen/ANU) joined the following year. The contributors aim to describe and analyse international law where it is most controversial and ambiguous. On an average day, Opinio Juris is read by more than 3,000 people in 70+ countries. Posts have been cited by international and domestic courts, international arbitrators, and government officials. Opinio Juris posts have also been cited thousands of times in academic and professional publications.  In 2007, the Legal Advisor to the State Department, John Bellinger III, guest-blogged at Opinio Juris – the first time a US government official blogged in an official capacity on international law.
