NOTICE: Comparative Law Review

The Comparative Law Review is now online.

The Comparative Law Review is a peer-reviewed, English language journal concerned to engage with the theoretical exploration of legal systems and the mutual intersections of Law and Culture.

The principal aim of the CoLR is to reassess the understanding of comparativism so to provide an international forum for academic research and to orient the new trends of scholarly debate on central subject-matters, such as the critical construction of legal traditions, the governance of legal order, the subtle interfaces between Law and Politics, the jurisdictional projects, the undertaking of a new legal geopolitics, the economic dimension of legal changes, the mutable forms of global scenarios.

Central to CoLR’s mandate is to explore legal theory, judicial practice and public policy, inspecting the urgent issues of our age. CoLR is also devoted to stimulate and promote an interdisciplinary approach to Law, relocating classical topics in a new framework at the crossroads of law and history, law and literature, law and philosophy, law and theology, law and visual arts.

The editors invite the submission of essays, topical article, comments, critical reviews, which will be evaluated by an independent committee of referees on the basis of their quality of scholarship, originality, and contribution to reshaping legal views and perspectives. On this ground CoLR is intended to become an international high-impact journal and an essential source of reference for academics from all over the world

The articles in the first volume are:
  • Giuseppe Franco Ferrari and Antonio Gambaro, The Italian Constitutional Court and Comparative Law. A Premise
  • Simona Benedettini and Antonio Nicita, Towards the Economics of Comparative Law: the ‘Doing Business’ Debate
  • Arianna Vedaschi, Has the balancing of rights given way to a hierarchy of values?
  • Claudia Amodio, General Jurisprudence: Then and Now. Twining’s Case for a General Theory of Law From a Global Perspective
