Focus and Scope

The IUS Law Journal is a scholarly legal publication of the Faculty of Law at the International University of Sarajevo (IUS). It serves as a platform targeting largely legal scholars, legal practitioners, FLW students (specifically graduate students in the last leg of their studies), and non-lawyers.  It is a robustly blind, open access, peer-review journal published every June in English, the language of instruction here at IUS. The journal is designed to explore issues relating to Bosnian public and private laws along with lessons for other constitutional systems, irrespective of legal tradition (civil or common law) or democratic status (young or established), in a contemporary world marked by migration of constitutional ideas.
