Amicus Curiae

Amicus Curiae

Amicus Curiae is the official journal of both the Society for Advanced Legal Studies and the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies. We chose the name Amicus Curiae - friend of the court - to give emphasis to our desire to promote legal research and scholarship which is relevant to and supportive of the administration of justice. It is our view that academia has much to offer the practice of law, and practitioners certainly have much they could contribute to the advancement of scholarship. Amicus Curiae will, we are sure, become an important vehicle for raising and exploring issues, primarily of a topical nature, which can then be taken further by the Society and Institute.
