The Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal focusing on the intersections of global and domestic legal regimes, markets, politics, technologies, and cultures. Student notes are edited by the journal’s student editors; faculty submissions are peer reviewed by faculty reviewers and editors. Those interested in submitting articles to IJGLS can do so at Scholastica.

This journal seeks to facilitate dialogue among international communities of scholars in law, sociolegal studies, politics, economics, anthropology, philosophy, cultural studies, and other disciplines with intersecting concerns bearing on new forms of law related to globalization processes (and their contestation). By its very nature, the globalization of law challenges the conventional boundaries among subject disciplines and professional research practices, as well as the boundaries around sovereign state regulatory regimes. The journal is a forum for ongoing research and interdisciplinary, international collaboration. We welcome individual submissions and proposals for symposium issues. All published articles are accessible “open access” after three years.

In brief, the long range goals of this journal are four-fold:

  • to establish collaborative relationships among scholars of different disciplines, especially law, political science, economics, philosophy, and anthropology;
  • to lay the foundations for new modes of interdisciplinary communication on an ongoing basis;
  • to advance scholarship in this area by encouraging the creation of new linkages across interdisciplinary theories of global change and their implications for law;
  • and to facilitate the development of reforms and new perspectives on domestic and international regulatory structures.
