Jerusalem Review of Legal Studies Joins LSN Partners in Publishing Journals

We are pleased to announce that Jerusalem Review of Legal Studies, has joined our Partners in Publishing Journals within the Legal Scholarship Network (LSN).

View Abstracts: http://www.ssrn.com/link/Jerusalem-Review-Legal-Studies.html

The Jerusalem Review of Legal Studies is a law journal dedicated to in-depth discussions of recent important studies of and in law. Typically, each issue consists of two symposia on a recent or forthcoming book, or on a research-project that is not quite a book. Each symposium consists of critical comments by several commentators (the first of which includes an overview of the relevant work), and a response by the person whose research project it is. The published version of the symposia is based on actual, real-life symposia held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Faculty of Law, where initial versions of the comments and responses are discussed in person. The written versions of the comments and responses are then subject to a review process that ensures not just the quality of the critical exchange, but also that the texts incorporate the lessons of the oral discussion at the symposium. The JRLS fills a gap in the current legal literature by offering a stage for the kind of sustained and focused critical discussion of influential theoretical research-projects.

The JRLS engages books and other research projects in all methodological disciplines of legal theory, and of all legal areas. The projects discussed are chosen by the editors based on their importance, theoretical significance, interest, and influence. The JRLS ensures that the selection of commentators is such as to encourage critical examination of the relevant work both from within the relevant sub-discipline, and from related fields and sub-disciplines.
