Hungary’s oldest, largest and most prestigious university, the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) starts its 378th academic year in 2013. Its Faculty of Law and Political Sciences maintains wide-ranging international relations, primarily with universities in Europe.

As a part of its vision on fostering international educational and scholarly ties, ELTE has launched its Law Journal, with the aim of it becoming an international and regional forum for learned debate on comparative legal studies.

ELTE Law Journal targets a regional and international readership including scholars, students and practitioners. This is also reflected by the international composition of the Advisory Board.

ELTE Law Journal invites you to submit original articles that explore contemporary, practical issues in the field of private law, criminal law, constitutional and administrative law, international law and European law. We have a strong preference for submissions with a comparative approach and for articles exploring legal issues from the perspective of European law and/or international law.

We accept submissions on a rolling basis in the following categories:

  • Articles, which are longer contributions, of up to 12,000 words (including footnotes).
  • Notes on recent legislation, treaties and model laws, as well as case notes on important decisions of the highest national courts, international courts or constitutional courts (up to 5,000 words incl. footnotes).
  • The Journal also contains book reviews, a forum for short writings (e.g. discussion notes, responses to articles previously published), and information on upcoming events, conferences.

All contributions will be subject to double blind peer review.
