The German Law Journal Warmly Welcomes Donations

The GLJ’s Editor-in-Chief is based at the Washington & Lee University School of Law.  The School of Law provides modest—but by no means comprehensive—financial support for the Journal’s operations and related programming.  The Journal’s entire staff, including the peer-review editorial board and the W&L student editors,  donate their time and effort to the Journal.  The Journal is independent of any commercial enterprise and does not have its own consistent source of revenue.

The Journal’s needs for support are significant, especially to help cover the costs of production:

  • Maintenance and security of the Journal’s website represents a significant cost.
  • Working with scholars and legal experts all over the world, the Journal also often needs resources to help with translations or editing.
  • The Journal hosts an annual meeting of the editorial board, featuring a substantive scholarly colloquium and a business session.

The Journal also needs support for the academic and scholarly programs associated with coverage:

  • The Journal is a sponsor of the annual “German Law in Context” program at Washington & Lee University.
  • The Journal has helped sponsor an annual, week-long “Comparative Law Academy” at German universities and involving law students from Europe and the United States.
