International Review of Law is an established, internationally peer reviewed bilingual journal that seeks to articulate contemporary legal discourse across cultures and borders. From its base in Qatar, the journal aims to bring perspectives from around the world to developments in the law.
The journal is open to doctrinal, context based, reformative or comparative work, in all fields of law. Authors who want to reach an audience beyond traditional fixed locations will welcome this new open access platform, which accepts submissions in both English and Arabic and provides abstract translations, as well as some full translations.
Accepted submissions are promptly published online, and subsequently distributed in print format. The journal is published twice a year, and invites contributions from legal scholars with varied perspectives. All manuscripts are peer reviewed prior to publication or rejection. The journal is open access and all articles are published under a Creative Commons licence, meaning they are freely available online and can be reused with appropriate attribution. Additionally, the author keeps the copyright to their work.
We are grateful to Qatar University College of Law for covering all article processing charges for this journal.
