The Journal of Comparative Law: An Organ of The Association for Comparative Legal Studies Limited has strong input from numerous colleagues and institutions with expertise in the comparative analysis of law and legal change across a very wide range of jurisdictions and legal cultures and is refereed and published twice a year.
The Journal provides a scholarly resource for the field of comparative legal studies in a broad sense. In order to achieve this aim, it publishes articles on all aspects of comparative law, in all geographical areas of the world, and encourages analytical (rather than purely descriptive) work with a contextual, theoretical and interdisciplinary approach. Due weight is given to the practical aspects of comparative legal studies in a globalised world.

Simultaneous submissions are not accepted. Articles should normally be between 7,000 and 14,000 words. However, substantially shorter and substantially longer articles are also very welcome. Colleagues wishing to submit such articles should consult the Editors in advance. Pieces for the Research Commentaries section (pieces which deal with short, but relevant, points) should normally be between 1,000 and 2,000 words. Book reviews should be between 600-1,500 words.
The editors of the JCL reserve the right to reject any submission which appears to them to contain a substantial replication, without appropriate attribution, of significant elements found in previously published material.
Reports of cases, casenotes, assessments and translations of important documents (particularly in non-Western languages), and annotated bibliographies are all very welcome.
Colleagues are also invited to bring to the Journal’s attention recent items of interest in their field, whether books, articles or any other type of work for inclusion in the Noted Publications‚ section. This section introduces publications deemed important by comparatists-at-law, and provides a short commentary on their content and significance. Please contact Professor Pierre Legrand.
