JOURNAL OF CIVIL LAW STUDIES
In 2008, the Center of Civil Law Studies of the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center (CCLS) started publishing the Journal of Civil Law Studies (JCLS). The JCLS is circulated freely and electronically; authors hold the copyright to their contribution. The JCLS is referenced like any printed periodical, and off-prints are available for authors. The JCLS webpage also publishes additional materials, such as pre-publications of forthcoming papers and translations of JCLS articles.
The JCLS is peer-reviewed. The Board of Editors is composed of distinguished comparatists from all over the world, consisting mostly of Civilians with a strong knowledge of the common law systems, but also common law scholars with civil law experience. Student Associates contribute to the editing.
The JCLS is intended to promote a multidisciplinary and pluralistic approach, and to focus on the following themes:
In addition to regular issues, the JCLS publishes the papers of the Civil Law Workshop and of conferences organized by or in cooperation with the CCLS. A section of the JCLS is reserved for publications by students of the LSU Law Center.
