Common Market Law Review

Published in cooperation with the Europa Institute of Leiden University
The Common Market Law Review has provided the world’s preeminent forum for analysis and discussion in the field of European Union law for over 50 years. Thanks to the international composition of its Editorial Board, and the fact that we attract contributions from a global community of researchers, the Review offers its readers a uniquely diverse, rigorous and insightful compendium of European Union legal issues and debates.

  • Constitutional and institutional law
  • EU law in national courts
  • Citizenship and fundamental rights
  • Internal market, competition and State aid
  • The Single Currency and economic governance
  • EU external relations
  • Area of Freedom, Security and Justice
  • New horizons in EU law: regulating the digital economy, controlling the Schengen borders, managing Brexit, the “rule of law” crisis, etc.

Six times a year, subscribers receive vital information and analysis on trends and developments. The Review’s easy-to-use format includes penetrating articles by outstanding practitioners and academics; annotations of cases from the European Court of Justice, as well as relevant cases from National courts, the WTO, the European Court of Human Rights, and other tribunals addressing European Union Law; book reviews; and a comprehensive bibliographical survey of pertinent literature.

Information for Authors

The Editors welcome for review manuscripts that address topics drawn from across the entire and dynamic field of EU law, though we encourage authors to bear in mind the broad nature of our readership, as well as our goal to publish lasting contributions on the key questions facing our discipline. It can be especially useful, when writing on an apparently more specialized area or subject, or when writing from a particular national perspective, to identify and / or explore its potential wider significance, its relationship with cognate issues in other fields, or its value as an exemplar of more general trends etc. The Editors would also like to highlight the value of combining high standards of academic rigour in terms of research and critical analysis, with approaches that might enrich the perspectives also of our considerable readership working on policy and in practice at the national, European and international levels.
