The Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law was established in 2011 at the University of Cambridge. Click here to view the text and photographs from the launch of the Journal at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law. It is an open access, double-blind peer review Journal, which can be distinguished by five key features:
1. A broad focus on international and comparative law and intersecting domestic, regional, transnational and international legal regimes.
2. A commitment to being an open access, double blind peer review Journal.
3. A commitment to providing a platform for both young and well-established academics to publish their work along side and in dialogue with each other. The Journal aims to become a platform for constructive and critical dialogue between the different generations of international and comparative scholars.
4. A commitment to publishing outstanding research on cutting edge, highly topical, legal issues.
5. The CJICL will publish an annual special issue, which will critically examine the decisions of the UK
Supreme Court from the preceding judicial year. The CJICL is the only journal to produce a full issue review of the previous three terms of the work of the UK Supreme Court. In addition to its yearly value, the comprehensive review will also, in future editions, be able to assess the work of the Court over time. This will provide a unique research resource for students and academics alike.
In addition, an integral part of the Journal is the online blog and the international and comparative law conference held annually in Cambridge.
