IUS Law Journal

This journal is one of various tools that the Faculty of Law at IUS uses to put law into practice. It is an English-language, peer-review publication, one of a kind in this region, published twice a year in Fall and Spring. It was established on August 9, 2018, via Decision IUS-FLW-15-1945/18 of the Faculty of Law Council. A scholarly legal publication of the Faculty of Law at the International University of Sarajevo, this journal is designed to explore issues relating to Bosnian public and private laws along with pointed lessons for other constitutional systems, irrespective of legal tradition (civil or common law) or democratic status (young or established), in a contemporary world marked by migration of constitutional ideas. This journal is a tool of faculty development as well as a key medium of hands-on training in writing (through the production of case notes) for eligible undergraduate and graduate students. The Faculty of Law plans to release its maiden edition of the journal circa February of 2019.

Dear contributors, prospective contributors, and prospective subscribers,

February 15, 2019, has come and gone and our (extended) deadline for the call for papers for the maiden edition of the IUS Law Journal has lapsed. We will now settle in to review the submissions we received and to complete the logistics and related processes necessary for the timely release of our first edition.

I use this opportunity to thank all contributors who responded to our call for papers by submitting manuscripts and to encourage prospective authors to submit—when we invite those submissions in the future, whether through a call for papers, as we just did, or by notice short of a formal call for papers.

Whether a contributor, prospective contributor or prospective subscriber, in whichever category you find yourself, we appreciate your interest in the IUS Law Journal.

Philip C. Aka,
