Publication of selected papers in the Singapore Journal of Legal Studies (SJLS)
Conference participants will be asked to indicate whether they would like their papers to be considered for publication in a special edition of the SJLS. The revised papers should be submitted in March 2020 for refereeing and selected papers will be published in the second-half of 2020.
The SJLS has been in continuous publication since 1959 when it first appeared as the University of Malaya Law Review. Institutional changes made it necessary for the journal to be re-named twice, first as the Malaya Law Review and then the Singapore Journal of Legal Studies. Together with its predecessor journals, the journal is one of the oldest legal journals in the British Commonwealth.
The SJLS publishes articles on private and public international law as well as comparative law. It features topics with theoretical or practical appeal or a mixture of both. The SJLS continues to interest lawyers, academics and observers in and outside the common law world. Indeed, it has been cited by leading common law courts such as the House of Lords/Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, the Supreme Court of Canada, the High Court of Australia, the High Court of Malaysia and the Supreme Court of Singapore.
The SJLS is a faculty-managed publication with its Editorial Committee drawn from faculty members of NUS Law with advice from eminent legal personalities from other institutions in Singapore and abroad. It is fully peer-reviewed under conditions of anonymity by subject specialists within and outside NUS Law.
