About the Journal
„Comparative Law Review” (ISSN 0866-9449, e-ISSN 2391-7644) („CLR”) is an open access, peer-reviewed and refereed international journal published by the Faculty of Law and Administration at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (Poland) since 1989 (with some intervals). The scope of „CLR” includes both private and public law, with particular focus on comparative studies. The Editors encourage authors to submit articles and shorter notes that are interdisciplinary in nature and/or analyse a legal problem from a comparative perspective. We particularly welcome proposals elaborating on how the comparative method is applied in domestic and international law-making and jurisprudence. Consequently, we invite original contributions on public international law and EU law. By the same token, we welcome papers dealing with all fields of domestic law, legal theory and philosophy, as well as history of law.
The journal is published in both print and online versions. It is a fully open access journal, thus the articles published in CLR are easily searchable on the Internet (via Google Scholar, BASE, etc.). There are no charges for article processing, article submission or open-access policy for the authors or their institutions.
The journal is indexed with and included in Index Copernicus Journals Master List, ERIH PLUS, CEEOL, DOAJ and SCOPUS (starting from vol. 25).
We learn with sadness the passing of Professor Jürgen Basedow - a renowned legal scholar and a longtime Director at Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg and Professor at the University of Hamburg. We were privileged that Prof. Basedow was a member of Comparative Law Review Academic Board. It is a great loss to legal scholarship. His works will inspire next generations of lawyers. Non omnis moriar Professor!
