There has never been a better time for legal research from a comparative perspective and a greater need to evaluate domestic and regional laws against international standards of justice and fairness. This is because of:

  • • the ever increasing need for uniform legal rules and practices to facilitate international trade and commerce;
  • • the demand by nations all across the world for collective action to counter the unprecedented number of threats to peace and security;
  • • the ever-growing awareness that while recognising the uniqueness of domestic legal systems there is much to learn from the experience of other legal systems;
  • • an infectious eagerness to identify and uphold those fundamental legal values and standards that ought to be universally recognised
JICL’s aim is to promote truly international legal research and scholarship encouraging new insights into law in context. The journal publishes expert accounts and thought provoking assessments of important theoretical or jurisprudential questions. It encourages discussion of contemporary issues of law not only those conventionally in the areas of international law and comparative law, but also national and regional legal developments which will be of interest to a much wider audience. It welcomes interdisciplinary contributions especially those that tangibly link such disciplines as social sciences, economics, international politics, media studies and other fields of research and academic debate that may be more empirically based but of major significance in influencing the focus and reform of law in its national and global contexts.
JICL invites contributions from established as well as young research scholars on all areas of law, be they jurisprudential, historical, black-letter or contextual.
JICL considers full length articles providing an opportunity for in depth analysis of issues primarily of law which may be approached, inter alia, from an historical, social, economic or contextual perspective. Shorter contributions in the form of Notes and Comments enable our authors to critically comment, relatively quickly, on recent legal developments. JICL will also publish book review articles giving the reviewer an opportunity to share their own thoughts on the subject matter of the reviewed book.
