Articles should be original works of legal analysis on topics relating to Chinese law
or other legal issues that pertain to China. Citations are required for all points of
law, assertions of fact, or references to other works. Citations should be in footnotes
and formatted in accordance with the Bluebook (http://www.legalbluebook.com).
Articles may be submitted by email, in Word format, to TsinghuaCLR@gmail.com or
in hard copy, along with a CD‐ROM electronic copy, to the Tsinghua School of Law.
Kindly email the preceding address for postal information. The current Call for
Submissions is open until April 3, 2009. Submitted articles will be considered on
a rolling basis.
A Note on the Language of Publication
The main body of articles should be written in English. However, Chinese‐language
legal terminology, citations, or references to laws or other original sources may be
provided in Chinese, and will be translated by the TCLR editorial staff. In addition,
for articles that regularly reference Chinese‐language laws or other materials, the
TCLR editorial staff will translate the materials to English so that they may be
included as appendices to the article for publication.
Website: The TCLR website will be hosted by the Eastlaw service, and is currently under construction. Once complete, from the site one can view abstracts of published articles, submit articles, subscribe to the journal, and receive information about symposia events, etc. If you would like to subscribe to our listserv to receive periodic email updates (only critical emails, perhaps one per month), kindly send an email to TsinghuaCLR@gmail.com with the phrase “[Subscribe TCLR listserv]” in the subject line.
