New Law Journal from Thomson Rivers: Canadian Journal of Comparative and Contemporary Law

CJCCL-logoThe new Canadian Journal of Comparative and Contemporary Law (CJCCL) was launched in 2013 at Thompson Rivers University, Faculty of Law (TRU Law). The inaugural issue was published just last month (January 2015). This issue has for its theme “Health Law and Human Rights”, focusing on the interrelationship between health law and human rights and featuring contributions from nationally and internationally acclaimed scholars in the field including a Foreword by Osgoode’s own Dean Lorne Sossin. The thematic focus of the CJCCL’s second issue, to be published in January 2016 will be “Equity in the 21st Century: Problems and Perspectives”.  For further details, visit the journal’s submissions page.

The CJCCL is an open access journal. Articles may be downloaded from the journal’s website free of charge. CJCCL articles will be also accessible through HeinOnline, Westlaw and Google Scholar. At least one volume will be published annually.

The CJCCL aims to establish itself as a top-rated academic publication. Its mandate is to publish rigorous, innovative scholarship that makes a significant contribution to legal study. The CJCCL’s Editors in Chief select a specific theme that will be the focus of each year’s issue, facilitating a penetrating analysis of a particular legal topic to a greater degree than other, general interest academic law reviews. Contributors are also encouraged to take a comparative approach in their scholarship.

TRU Law and the editors of the CJCCL are to be congratulated on this landmark event in the life of their new law school and for their significant contribution to Canadian legal scholarship.
