Journal of Malaysian and Comparative Law

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 It publishes original unpublished works comprising articles, comments, case notes and reviews on the whole spectrum of legal topics and issues.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 either once or twice a year (June and/or December), depending on the number of contributions accepted in each year.

The JMCL accepts and publishes contributions from scholars all over the world. Its articles in both English and Bahasa Malaysia 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 law, but in the past decade or so, the journal has become more vibrant and open to the developments in law in other jurisdictions. 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.

Each manuscript will be blind 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.
