About the CJCCL

The Canadian Journal of Comparative and Contemporary Law is an open-access journal, published annually, at the Faculty of Law of Thompson Rivers University, in British Columbia.

Launched in 2015, the Journal aims to fill a gap in the landscape of Canadian legal scholarship by featuring research with a comparative focus, on issues of pressing interest to jurists in Canada and other common law jurisdictions.

The CJCCL has published a range of prominent scholars and jurists on Health Law and Human Rights (2015); the Law of Equity (2016); Problems of Interpretation in International Law (2017); and Privacy, Identity, and Control of Data (2018).

The Journal has featured prefatory essays from Lorne Sossin, and Justices Louis Le Bel, Russell Brown, and Rosalie Silberman Abella of the Supreme Court of Canada.

Research published in the CJCCL has been cited in leading journals around the world, including the Cambridge Law Journal, the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies, Public Law, Griffith Law Review, Aukland University Law Review, and many others.

CJCCL articles may be downloaded from this site, and can also be found on Canlii.org, HeinOnline, Westlaw, and Google scholar.

The CJCCL does not, at this time, accept book reviews.
