Journal of Law and Courts (JLC) is a peer-reviewed journal for members of the law and courts intellectual community. It is interdisciplinary in scope and encourages connections between different scholarly approaches to the field.

 

Sponsored by a political science organization but published for all scholars interested in legal institutions, actors, processes, and policy, the journal is dedicated to combating intellectual fragmentation and promoting communication and fertilization across traditional boundaries. JLC publishes articles that tackle theoretical and empirical questions that strike a wide audience of scholars as important.  JLC employs highly rigorous arguments and methods, and is written in a manner interesting and accessible to scholars with perspectives different from the author's.

 

JLC is published by the University of Chicago Press in association with the Law and Courts Organized Section of the American Political Science Association.
