Journal of Legal and Political Education


Education Law Political Science

The Journal of Legal and Political Education (JLPE) is now accepting submissions for its forthcoming 2024 issues. We invite submissions that address innovative approaches, critical analyses, and contemporary issues in the fields of legal and political education. Articles that develop theoretical arguments or offer strong empirical evidence as either comparative or single-case studies are welcome. The focus and scope of this journal revolve around the interdisciplinary exploration and advancement of knowledge in the realms of law and politics, particularly within an educational context. Submitted articles undergo an initial editorial screening and a double-blind peer review process to ensure the highest standards of scholarship and relevance. Authors will receive feedback and may be asked to make revisions before final acceptance.

In response to the evolving landscape of academic publishing and to better serve scholars, the Journal of Legal and Political Education has adopted a rolling submission and publication model.

You can submit your article at any time throughout the year. The rolling submission deadlines, corresponding with the publication of journal issues, are as follows:

Submission Round 1: 10 January

Submission Round 2: 10 August

Note: If your article is submitted after the final deadline for the volume, it will be considered for the following year’s volume. The sooner you submit, the sooner your article will begin the peer review process. Early submission means that your article may be published with a full citation as soon as it is ready.

The scope of the submitted article's text should not exceed more than 8000 words. You can register and submit online, or email submissions to
