The SEE Law Journal is an English language journal of the South East European Law School Network (SEELS), originally established with support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Open Regional Fund for South East Europe-Legal Reform. Both the first (January 2014) and the second edition (November 2014) were issued with the aforementioned support. In an unprecedented way, the ambitious project for the SEE Law Journal as regards its scope and content, the SEE Law Journal makes available to a global audience a unique, namely South East European perspective on the vibrantly evolving regional systems, traditions and innovations of law in the region in the context of historical, economic and political‐legal transformation. As such, the SEE Law Journal provides for a highly valuable, transnational platform to bring together scholars and academics to engage in thought exchange regarding the challenges and possibilities arising from the unique historical and geographical context.
The SEE Law Journal publishes high‐quality original scholarship, including scholarship previously published in languages of the region, as well as other materials that contribute to the knowledge transfer and exchange of best practices with regard to public and private law, EU law, legal education and the legal profession.
Starting from September 2015 until 2018 the development and maintenance of the SEE Law Journal is going to be co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, under the project “Strengthening EU Legal Studies in South East Europe”. The support of the European Union is going to be used for further development of the SEE Journal, including but not limited to: creation of a separate SEE Law Journal website; dissemination of information and communication in regards to the SEE Law Journal with the relevant EU based research institutions and higher institutions; increasing the visibility of the researchers of EU Law in the Western Balkans. As a final outcome of the project we expect to strenghten the capacities of SEELS as a key competence centre for EU Law studies in the region of South East Europe, as well as Faculties’ capacities for EU legal studies. The project will increase the visibility of SEELS and will foster the SEE Law Journal to become the main vehicle for the promotion of EU Law affairs in South East Europe.
