I am pleased to forward the following announcement:
The Asian Journal of Comparative Law (AsJCL) is an initiative of the Asian Law Institute, an association of thirteen leading law schools in Asia. The AsJCL is a peer-reviewed journal which is published in both the printed form and the electronic form, the latter by Berkeley Electronic Press (BEPRESS) (website at www.bepress.com/asjcl ). The journal is spearheaded by faculty from the National University of Singapore's Law School and the journal's editorial board comes from top institutions across the Asian-Pacific region and South Asia.
Based in Asia and representing the most prominent Asian legal institutions, The Asian Journal of Comparative Law is the definitive new source for Asian perspectives on the law and legal perspectives on Asia. Articles from Asian scholars with intimate local knowledge offer special insight into the ways that legal solutions are tailored to local culture and circumstance. Comparative law, central to Asian legal scholarship, is defined broadly: recent topics include Korean corporate governance, the political culture of blogging in Malaysia, and Asian discourses on legal education. The Asian Journal of Comparative Law will be an invaluable resource for scholars of comparative and international law, as well as scholars of Asian area studies.
