Journal Information

The Sri Lanka Journal of Legal Studies (SLJLS) is the official journal of the Department of Legal Studies of the Open University of Sri Lanka (OUSL).  Considering the dearth of journals in legal studies, the mission of SLJLS is to launch a double-blind, peer-reviewed, free-of-charge, and open-access journal, which would enrich existing legal literature and provides opportunities for legal scholars to publish their findings and contribute to the global legal knowledge.

The SLJLS will be helpful for undergraduate and post-graduate law students in many state universities in Sri Lanka to find relevant legal knowledge for their studies. This journal can also be used in many aspects such as finding solutions to social issues, policy changes, writing judgments, and law-making processes. Additionally, the SLJLS will provide an opportunity for global scholars to learn the comparative aspects of legal systems, including Sri Lanka’s diverse legal system, and best practice examples for contemporary legal issues.
