Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law

The Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law is an open access double blind peer-reviewed journal, published under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License.
The Journal was launched on 25 October 2011 at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law in Cambridge by its inaugural Editors-in-Chief and Professor James Crawford SC,[1] who called it “a useful complement to Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law [published by Cambridge University Press”, as both fall well within the Cambridge ethos of trying to look into international law from a broad perspective”.[2] The journal is run and edited by students at the University of Cambridge but receives assistance from an Academic Review Board [3] It is the second Journal of the Faculty of Law at the University (the other one being the Cambridge Law Journal [4]) and one of the very few open access double blind peer review journals on international and comparative law. The CJICL is entering its third year of operation in the 2013-14 academic year, with 56 members on its editorial board.
The Journal publishes articles, case notes and book reviews on international law, comparative law, EU law and transnational law in four issues throughout the year (two regular issues, a compendium of conference papers from the CJICL conference and the UK Supreme Court Review – the latter is compiled by the editorial staff of the Journal and analyses the work of the UKSC in the previous judicial year). It also runs an online blog, which publishes short articles on topical international and comparative law issues. The CJICL holds an annual conference on International law.[5]
