Journals on Jurisprudence

ANCILLA IURIS
http://www.anci.ch/

Ancilla Iuris offers a professional and state-of-the-art publication platform to advance European contributions on constellations of law and society. Following a interdisciplinary approach, we bring together law with its neighboring disciplines such as Political Sciences, Economics,Sociology, Linguistics, Philosophy, History, Art, Psychology etc. To help European contributors to gain access to the important English speaking audience, we translate selected publications into English in order to make them available to readers in both languages simultaneously. In this way, all internet published contributions of Ancilla Iuris will become immediately part of global academic networks, while at the same time preserving and making available the important background of the original language.

JURISPRUDENCE
http://ajj.oxfordjournals.org/

In 2008, a major Australian university began promoting its new graduate law program with the tag line, “Don’t get lost in legal theory, get into practice!” Call me old fashioned, but I believe that to be an effective lawyer, judge or even legal secretary, one should understand the underlying rational for one’s legal system. Legal philosophy, or jurisprudence, is central to practical application of law.

Contemporary legal education has disconnected practice and theory, and in convening The Journal Jurisprudence, I am seeking to bridge this gap. The field of jurisprudence lies at the nexus of law and politics, the practical and the philosophical. By understanding the theoretical foundations of law, jurisprudence can inform us to the place of legal structures within larger philosophical frameworks.

The Journal is issued four times per year. Each edition will focus on a key question of the discipline. Lawyers, philosophers, jurists, academics and lay individuals are welcome to submit articles addressing, directly or indirectly, the edition’s key question. Articles will be curated based upon, among other things, accessibility to lay readers. If we are to bridge the ever-widening gap between theory and practice, this journal must be read by more than just jurisprudential scholars.
