The International Review of Law Journal is seeking articles for a special issue on domestic violence to be published in Spring 2013. Our goal is to showcase papers that address practical and theoretical accomplishments and challenges worldwide in the area of domestic violence. Provided that the focus of the article is law-related, the definition of domestic violence will be construed broadly.
ABOUT THE JOURNAL: The International Review of Law Journal is a peer-reviewed, bi-lingual (Arabic and English) international law journal at Qatar University College of Law. All content in the journal is ‘open access,’ meaning articles are free-to-read on the web and authors retain copyright on the print and electronic versions of their work. From its base in the Middle East, the journal aims to bring perspectives from around the world to developments in the law. Submissions are accepted in both English and Arabic.
ABOUT THE SPECIAL ISSUE: The Domestic Violence special issue will be edited by Professor Mary Pat Treuthart, Gonzaga University School of Law. A section of this issue will be reserved for student submissions. Selected authors will be invited to Qatar University College of Law in Doha to conduct a guest lecture on their area of research.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Contributors are requested to submit manuscripts of no more than 30 double-spaced pages including footnotes. Shorter pieces are welcome.
