Journal Of Open Law, Technology & Society

The Asian Journal of Law and Society adds an increasingly important Asian perspective to global law and society scholarship. Its coverage of Asia is broad and stretches from East Asia, South Asia and South East Asia to Central Asia. A unique combination of a base in Asia and an international editorial team creates a forum for Asian and Western scholars to exchange ideas of interest to Asian scholars and professionals, those working in or on Asia, as well as all working on law and society issues globally. It provides the latest announcements and news in health law, medicine, ethics, public policy, public health, and all of the related disciplines that ASLME covers.

The Ramapo Journal of Law and Society is an interdisciplinary, online journal devoted to the publication of undergraduate scholarship in Law and Society. The Journal’s mission is to provide a platform to undergraduate students from across disciplines to engage with socio-legal issues in the context of the liberal arts. We understand law and society broadly to include discussions of law in society not just as rigid bodies of rules but as dynamic institutions shaped by historical forces and social imperatives.

Led by Editor-in-Chief Steve K. Choi, the Spring 2005 edition of the Journal published works by two authors, focused on treatment programs for adolescents in correctional and detention facilities and retroactivity of the FSIA in Austria v. Altmann. MJLScombines the best elements of peer-reviewed journals and student-run journals to speed up the process by which cutting-edge scholarship can enter scholarly debates and inform the public consciousness. The words justice and judge have similar meanings because they have a common ancestry. They are derived from the same Latin term, jus, which is defined in dictionaries as “right” and “law.” However, those definitions of jus are so broad that they obscure the details of what the term meant when it formed the words that eventually became justice and judge. The etymology of jus reveals the kind of right and law it signified was related to the concepts of restriction and obligation.

Where the article cites several works by the same author from the same year, these must be distinguished using the letters ‘a’, ‘b’, etc. placed following the year of publication. Where there are three or more authors, only the first-named author should be mentioned in the text, followed by the phrase ‘et al.’. This page should state the title of the paper but make no mention of the name or contact details of the author. Both American English and British English are acceptable, but please ensure that your usage is consistent throughout the text. This means, as a rough guideline, that papers should not exceed 9,000 words . Contributions will be subject to a double blind peer review process, where necessary more than once, involving at least two external referees before the editors take a decision on publication.
