Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence to publish with Cambridge

The Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence (CJLJ), which has been published in-house at Western Law since 1988, has joined the roster of journals published by Cambridge University Press.

“The invitation to join CUP shows recognition of the journal’s reputation and will allow the journal to reach a greater worldwide and online audience,” says Dean W. Iain Scott.

Under the direction of editor Richard Bronaugh, the CJLJ has become a highly acclaimed source of scholarship on legal philosophy, publishing articles from world leaders in the field.

"While the journal's editorial board and its service as a broad forum for jurisprudence and legal philosophy will remain unchanged, we look forward to greater visibility and discoverability for CJLJ," says Bronaugh.

As an international journal of legal thought, CJLJ biannually serves as a forum for the publication of scholarly writing in general and special jurisprudence and legal philosophy – having published more than 500 articles since its founding.

"The Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence is well-known to scholars as one of the leading publications on jurisprudence globally,” says Ella Colvin, Director of Publishing, Social Sciences at Cambridge University Press.

“We are delighted to be able to add this excellent journal to our expanding journals list in law and to support the further development of its international visibility and readership,” says Colvin.

Through Cambridge, this well-established journal will offer both online and print subscriptions for the very first time, together with a full back archive of issues.

The first issue of CJLJ to be published with Cambridge University Press will be available in early 2015.
