Journal of International and Comparative Law (JICL)

Dec 2015


JICL promotes international legal research and scholarship encouraging new insights into law in context. It publishes expert accounts and thought-provoking assessments of important theoretical or jurisprudential questions. It welcomes interdisciplinary contributions especially those that tangibly link such disciplines as social sciences, economics, international politics, media studies and other fields of research and academic debate that may be more empirically based but of major significance in influencing the focus and reform of law in its national and global context.

The latest issue of the JICL carries a special collection of articles on contemporary issues in legal education. For special interest to Hong Kong should be “Creating a gold standard for practical legal training in Common Law countries” by Jack Burke and Hugh Zillmann. Other articles focus on issues such as future of law schools in the UK and USA, integrated law curriculum, instilling social values through clinical legal education, perspectives on business law clinics from UK, USA and Israel, and student involvement in assessment process.

Currently we are receiving submissions for publication in 2020. Submissions may be sent to Professor Anton Cooray at to whom any inquiries may also be directed.
