Another new law journal! This one is the International Journal of Law in the Built Environment, to be launched in 2009 by Emerald Group Publishing. Here is their website. If you would like a copy of the publisher's call for papers, click here Download IntlJBuiltEnvironment.pdf.
The journal seeks high-quality legal scholarship relating to the design, management, and use of the built environment. The journal particularly welcomes articles that draw comparisons between two or more jurisdictions and articles that offer theoretical legal perspectives that cross jurisdictions. They will cover many legal areas, but are particularly interested in
- Real Property
- Planning and Development
- The Environment
Articles should be between 4,000 and 7,500 words. Submit articles to Paul Chynoweth by clicking here. You can also write to him to ask about the suitability of potential articles. Paul is a Senior Lecturer in Property and Construction Law at the University of Salford, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom.
