Call for Articles: Tsinghua China Law Review & the Tsinghua China Law Award

Posted by Tsinghua China Law Review, community karma 45

Tsinghua China Law Review Vol. 9.1 (2016 Fall) is now open for submissions.

We encourage scholars, legal practitioners and law students from all backgrounds to submit articles on topics relating to Chinese law or other legal issues that pertain to China.

Tsinghua China Law Review is the top law student-run, English-language journal of legal scholarship published by a mainland Chinese university. Established in the Fall of 2009, Tsinghua China Law Review is dedicated to advancing the global academic discussion of all issues relating to China’s law, legal economy, and society. The unique scope of scholarship published by the journal promotes a greater understanding and a critical examination of the issues impacting Chinese law — a genre that is currently underserved in legal academia. 

Tsinghua China Law Review set up the Tsinghua China Law Award for Excellence in Academic Research to promote the global academic discussion on China’s legal reforms, and is dedicating its issue for the research of current developments of China's rule of law and legal reform. Starting from 2016, the best 5 essays (1 per year) submitted to TCLR will be honored by the award and be published in the issue of TCLR. Each of the 5 essays will be additionally recognized with a reward, thanks to the generous support of the Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation. Tsinghua China Law Review may offer to publish other high quality submissions at its sole discretion.
