    Aims and Scope

    Global Jurist offers a forum for scholarly cyber-debate on issues of comparative law, law and economics, international law, law and development, and legal anthropology. Edited by an international board of leading comparative law scholars from all the continents, Global Jurist is mindful of globalization and respectful of cultural differences. We will develop a truly international community of legal scholars where linguistic and cultural barriers are overcome and legal issues are finally discussed outside of the narrow limits imposed by positivism, parochialism, ethnocentrism, imperialism and chauvinism in the law. Submission is welcome from all over the world and particularly encouraged from less developed countries.

    Articles are published in three quality-rated tiers - Frontiers, Advances, and Topics - that are distinguished by breadth of appeal and overall quality. The journal is edited by an impressive list, including Ugo Mattei, Alfred and Hanna Fromm Chair in International and Comparative Law at Hastings College of the Law. Authors include notable professors from The London School of Economics, Oxford University, and The University of California, Berkeley.
