The core aim of Legal Issues Journal (LIJ) it to publish original research that contributes towards achieving justice. The Journal publishes interdisciplinary research at the intersection of law and other disciplines, including genetics, biosciences, philosophy, linguistics, neuroscience and medicine.

The Journal welcomes original papers, case comments, short reports, debates and book reviews. The Journal also provides important news and interpretation on changes in the legal world and coming trends affecting law, lawyers, and society. Contribution to society, nationally and internationally, is the focus of LIJ.

Ethics in both research and reviewing are of primary importance at LIJ. Only research which follows strict ethical protocol is published; and LIJ uses double-blind peer review process – both the reviewer(s) and the author(s) are anonymous.
