Information for authors

The focus of the Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law is the ius commune Europaeum. The common law of Europe can be seen all around us in the codification of our legislation, in our language, in our legal practice and procedure, in our ideas about what law is and what a proper methodology for legal reasoning is, and in our law schools. Consequently, there exists a need to search for and examine the common roots and principles upon which European legal systems are based. The journal welcomes all forms of articles examining this topic, including articles which survey developments or review academic literature in a particular field of law. The journal also welcomes short case notes and book reviews.
