The Journal Of Comparative Law

The Journal of Comparative Law (the JCL) is a scholarly resource for comparative legal studies in a broad sense of that term. It publishes material on all aspects of the field, in all types of legal traditions and in all geographical areas, be it theoretical, historical, modern, general, regional, or country-specific.

Analytical, rather than purely descriptive, work is encouraged. Contextual, theoretical, and interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome, as are analyses of the practical aspects of comparative legal studies in a globalized world.

 The JCL publishes a wide range of material. In addition to articles, notes, review articles, and book reviews, it also contains reports of cases, case-notes assessments, translations of documents (particularly those difficult to access and those in non-Western languages, or languages with relatively few speakers), annotated bibliographies and notes on recent material of interest.

The JCL is peer reviewed. It is published twice a year, in March and September.
