National Taiwan University College of Law, founded in 1928, is one of the most prestigious law schools in Taiwan. National Taiwan University Law Review (NTU Law Review), founded in 2006, has become a TSSCI-listed journal since. The NTU Law Review publishes on a biannual basis and all the submitted articles will undergo rigorous double-blind peer review process. If the submitted article is accepted, student editors, mostly the graduate students of the College of law, will complete most of the proofreading works and monitor the administrative affairs for publication under the direction and guidance of the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board of the NTU Law Review.
The main purpose of the NTU Law Review is to promote the understanding of Asian legal systems, deal with the latest legal issues and introduce Taiwanese law in English. Therefore, the NTU Law Review invites the submission of original articles, on any law related topic concerning Taiwan, Asian or any other jurisdictions of the author’s choice.
Since its initiation, the NTU Law Review has published two symposiums. The first one is about the constitution and international human rights law in 2009, and the second one is about benchmarking development of the rule of law in Asia in 2011. Both symposiums invited authors in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and China to write on related issues. It is the goal of NTU Law Review to be a leading publication in Asian comparative laws.
NTU Law Review also holds student notes competition once a year, which is open to all law students in Taiwan to submit their original work. Students participate in the competition will have the chance to practice the legal writing ability and get some feedback from reviewers, who are distinguished and well-known law professors in Taiwan. Student-written pieces won the competition may be selected to be published in the NTU Law Review.
The NTU Law Review aims to become a leading journal in introducing Asian laws, especially the East Asian and Southeast Asian legal systems. In addition, the NTU Law Review will keep introducing Taiwanese laws in English and create a platform for academic exchange with other prestigious universities throughout the world.
