Latest Constitutional Court Review is now available for download

Posted on October 25, 2011

To this end, each issue of the Review contains two lead essays exploring broad themes arising from a given year’s jurisprudence (each ± 20 000 words), each with its own response (± 5 000 words); a number of shorter subject-specific articles (each ± 10 000 words); and several case comments that engage more narrowly with a given decision of the Constitutional Court (each ± 5 000 words).

Lead essays are solicited by the editors, as are some of the subject-specific articles and case notes, but for the remainder unsolicited contributions are invited. Such contributions must be sent to the editors at [email protected] in MS Word format on or before 31 May of the year following that on which a contribution focuses.

Contributions will only be considered if they follow the house style.

The financial contribution of the World Bank and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation toward publication of the Constitutional Court Review is gratefully acknowledged.
