Our main criteria for assessing submissions include originality, quality of analysis, potential impact, and relevance to contemporary debates. Our aim is to publish papers of high quality, that will 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.

The only requrement is that the interested authors should be researching and writing on EU Law related topics such as analyses of EU Law related issues, implementation of the EU Law legislation in the region and local legislation practices, EU Law related news, book reviews, and similar.
