CJEL is currently the #1 ranked and second most-cited journal in the world covering European law.
CJEL publishes three print issues per year—Winter, Spring, and Summer—and contains articles exploring every dimension of European law. This includes the law of the European Union, law at the national or regional levels, as well as broader jurisprudential questions relevant to the development of law and legal institutions in Europe. The articles published cover a broad range of issues, including business law, intellectual property, human rights, and social problems, and are authored by leading academics and practitioners. Many articles are comparative in nature and directly relevant to the United States.
Columbia Law School students are entirely responsible for CJEL’s publication (recruitment process). CJEL is published under the auspices of Columbia’s European Legal Studies Center and with the guidance of Professors George A. Bermann and Anu Bradford. CJEL has a collaborative partnership with the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Catholic University of Leuven), Belgium, which gives it firsthand insight into cutting edge developments in EU legislation and European Court of Justice jurisprudence.
