Hart Publishing launched the Journal of Private International Law (J. Priv. Int. L.) in spring 2005. We invite papers for this scholarly, peer-reviewed publication of original articles and analysis of current developments in the field. The journal covers all aspects of private international law, reflecting the role of the European Union and the Hague Conference on Private International Law in the making of private international law, in addition to the traditional role of domestic legal orders.

There are three to four scholarly articles of 8-10,000 words, excluding footnotes, per issue. We welcome articles from scholars anywhere in the world writing in English about developments in any jurisdiction on any aspect of private international law. We also welcome shorter articles or analysis from anywhere in the world, including analysis of new treaties and conventions, and lengthy review articles dealing with significant new publications.

As of 2008 the Journal of Private International Law is published three times a year.

Prospective authors should contact the editors with their proposals of 300-500 words.
The Journal is officially associated with a website dedicated to promoting dialogue about private international law in all its forms. It is an interactive news and discussion portal, updated by a team of scholars from around the world. The creator and Chief Editor of, Martin George (University of Birmingham), is also the Website Coordinator for the Journal of Private International Law.

All correspondence concerning the website should be sent to Martin George.
