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.

The journal is currently on hiatus (mid-2022 onward).

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); International Law (2017); Data Privacy (2018); Animal Law (2019); Charity and Non-Profit Law; and Democratic Decay (2021).

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

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.
