About the Journal

The Central European Academy Law Review is a student-run journal whose primary purpose is to establish an academic publication forum for legal scholars and practitioners. The Review accepts legal scholarship of all kinds, irrespective of whether it is of private, public, EU or international law nature, provided that it concentrates on legal issues related to the Central and Eastern European region.

The Review is published twice a year: the first issue during the Winter Semester and the second one during the Summer Semester. The Review’s Editorial Team consists of doctoral candidates and one Editor-in-chief holding a PhD degree. The Editorial Team is responsible for the Review’s management, i.e. arranging the duties related to correspondence between authors, peer-reviewers, and editors. The Editorial Board includes five members who are responsible for academic editing, including choosing the peer-reviewers for manuscripts submitted and making the final decision—in agreement with the Editor-in-Chief—whether the manuscript is accepted for publication. The Advisory Board members are the ones responsible for advising on the publishing procedure and assessing the quality of the proposed articles. These Advisors can also function as peer-reviewers. However, external legal practitioners and scholars who are experts at the topic of the manuscript submitted may also be invited to peer-review. Throughout the whole editing process, manuscripts are considered as confidential information. Papers are selected on a rolling basis. In the case there is no possibility to publish an article in the Review, we suggest the author to have it published in the Studia Iurisprudentiae Doctorandorum Miskolciensium or in other journals, such as the Central European Journal of Comparative Law.

The Review publishes articles, book reviews, conference papers, and case law notes. The Review’s target authors are young researchers, such as PhD candidates and scholars who obtained their PhD in no more than 5 years. However, submissions by more experienced researchers are also welcome. All articles, without any exceptions, are subjected to a rigorous editorial and proofreading process.
