Legal Issues Journal (LIJ) publishes high-quality, independently peer-reviewed research, reviews, case notes, as well as debates and book reviews for all people with an interest in justice and society. The Journal also provides important news and interpretation on changes in the legal world and coming trends affecting law, lawyers, and society.

LIJ follows a blind review process.

It is published twice a year, in January and July. Accepted papers are published online upon being accepted (First View), and then formatted and published in Issues. Generally, each Issue will contain 4-6 articles, 1-2 case comments, and 1-2 book reviews, making about 44,000-55,000 words in total.

LIJ works closely with lawyers, scientists and other specialists, enabling us to publish quality interdisciplinary research. LIJ greatly appreciates the contribution of our peer-reviewers. It is only with the help of our reviewers that our editors can ensure that we publish high quality research.
