About the Journal

The Journal of Malaysian and Comparative Law (JMCL) is a blind refereed journal published by the Faculty of Law of the University of Malaya which began publication in 1974. It publishes original unpublished works comprising articles, comments, case notes and reviews on the whole spectrum of legal topics and issues. Currently, it publishes twice a year (June and December).

The JMCL accepts and publishes contributions from scholars all over the world. Its articles, in English, reflect its dual character as a Malaysian and comparative law journal. Its subject matter and contents, wide-ranging in character, reflect a bias towards Malaysian and Asian laws. This is in keeping with its flavour of being a comparative journal. Articles are therefore welcomed encompassing a variety of topics and a diversity of authors. Contributions are invited from staff, practitioners and legal scholars worldwide.

Please submit manuscripts to the Managing Editor of the Journal at jmcl@um.edu.my or via online submission here.

Each manuscript will be double-blind peer reviewed before approval for publication. Contributors will be notified of acceptance, rejection or the need for revision of their respective manuscripts. The Editors retain the right to make stylistic and grammatical changes to manuscripts accepted for publication without necessarily informing the contributor.

As the Journal has recently adopted an open access policy, articles published in the Journal from its first edition in 1974 to the present* can be viewed and downloaded here.
*delayed on a one-year basis.
