The International Journal of Language & Law (JLL) is entering its third triennium. After three years under the editorship of its founding editors from Germany and the US, and another three years under the editorship of the present authors, JLL has developed into an ambitious academic journal that serves as a forum for questions on the interdependence of language and law in all of its facets. With its authors coming from six continents, and demanding peer review procedures rejecting more than half of its submissions, JLL aspires to highest academic standards. As one of the first three humanities journals in the Free Journal Network, JLL also strives to be a best-practice pioneer in platinum open access publishing. The present progress report briefly summarizes the development of JLL since its inception in 2012, and welcomes the new managing editor for the present three-year term (2019–2021).
Language & Law is a platinum open access scholarly e-journal which offers a forum for research on the interdependence of language and law in all of its facets, from theoretical approaches to practical problems. Submissions are double-blindly peer-reviewed, and published entirely free of charge to authors and readers under a CC-BY license. Its editorial board comprises academics from various fields.
