About Theoretical Inquiries in Law

Theoretical Inquiries in Law (TIL) is a biannual English-language law journal published by the Cegla Center for Interdisciplinary Research of the Law at the Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University. The journal specializes in the application to legal problems of insights developed in other disciplines, such as moral and political theory, epistemology, history, cultural studies, social sciences, economics and game theory, probability theory, and cognitive psychology. The range of issues dealt with by the journal is virtually unlimited, in line with its commitment to the cross-disciplinary cultivation of ideas. Contributors to the journal are distinguished legal scholars working in different “law and . . .” areas. The journal also strives to offer a forum for contributions to legal theory by scholars working in disciplines outside of law.

TIL has the highest impact factor among all non-U.S. law reviews, and is well-known and much cited in Israel and all over the world.

Each year TIL publishes one volume, which is comprised of two separate issues. Each issue contains about eight to fifteen articles dedicated to a distinctive topic of law or legal theory, contributing groundbreaking research and new insights in the field. Recent topics include legal responses to the contemporary family, international cooperation regarding climate change, financial regulation, the legitimacy of international courts, beyond the public and private distinctions, and more.

The current issue, Volume 15, Number 2 (July 2014), New Approaches for a Safer and Healthier Society, explores various legal strategies, such as litigation, public and private regulation, doctrinal development, etc., that are deployed in order to improve public health and safety.

Forthcoming issues will include Financial Regulation and Comparative Corporate Governance (January 2015); and Sovereignty as Trusteeship for Humanity: Historical Antecedents and Their Impact on International Law (July 2015).

All issues and articles are based on biannual international conferences that are held by the Cegla Center for Interdisciplinary Research of the Law. The conferences are organized by prominent researchers (who also serve as guest editors). Each conference is dedicated to a specific field, and includes the most distinctive researchers in that field.

The forthcoming conferences are Organizing and the Law (Tel Aviv, January 4-6, 2015), organized by Guy Mundlak, Benjamin Sachs, and Hila Shamir; and The Constitution of Information: From Gutenberg to Snowdon (Toronto, May 28-29, 2015), organized by Lisa Austin and Ariel Katz. We recommend subscribing to our newsletter [add link] in order to receive the detailed programs of the conferences when they are published.

Researchers interested in organizing a conference are invited to contact Prof. Sharon Hannes, the Director of the Cegla Center: shannes@post.tau.ac.il.

 

TIL is available in electronic form on the De Gruyter law database. It also appears in Lexis, Westlaw, LegalTrac and HeinOnline.[Daniel, please complete the links]
