The Israel Law Review invites submissions on areas of interest in human rights, international and public law.

The Israel Law Review is a double-blind peer reviewed journal established in 1966, published by Cambridge University Press under the auspices and management of the Minerva Center for Human Rights at the Law Faculty of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Under this stewardship, it focuses on scholarship in the fields of human rights, public law and international law. The Chief editors of the journal are Prof. Malcolm N. Shaw QC, Senior Fellow, Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, University of Cambridge and practising barrister, Essex Court Chambers, London, UK, and Prof. Yuval Shany, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Issues of recent years have featured contributions by prominent scholars such as Martti Koskenniemi, Lech Garlicki, David Kretzmer, Kenneth Watkin, Yuval Shany and Mark Tushnet.

The journal publishes articles, shorter pieces addressing topical issues under the rubric of 'opposing views', as well as book reviews and review essays. We aim to present scholarship that is representative in terms of gender, geographical distribution and viewpoint. We accept submissions on a rolling basis.

Consideration will normally be given only to original material that has not previously been published and is not under consideration elsewhere. All submissions are subjected to a double-blind review process. You can find further details on our publication policy and process here.
