Aims & Scope
The mission of the Journal of Business Law Education (JBLE) is to enhance Business Law Education worldwide through the publication of high quality refereed case studies, lecture and review articles. The journal aims to be a recognized medium for educators of business law to publish and access teaching materials. The goal is to attract contributions from individuals within the profession who excel in the creation and teaching of business law lectures and who have developed exceptional teaching material and new approaches in the field.
The JBLE seeks to cover a wider range of subject areas within the business law field than conventional textbooks and will provide an innovative and diverse range of high quality teaching materials. In so doing, educators will have a new resource, which provides more flexibility and choice than the more rigid structure of textbooks. Furthermore, by also focusing on more general topics that are still relevant to the legal environment and cover individual areas of business-law related fields, non-law students can also gain a sound knowledge of business law.
The JBLE seeks to publish:
Case studies relating to Business Law (broadly defined) which are of sufficiently high merit with respect to content and application that they would qualify for use in classrooms and other learning environments of internationally acclaimed higher education institutions (and especially in leading international business schools).
Lecture Articles on any aspect of Business Law. One publication objective emphasizes user-friendliness and therefore, submitted papers are not exclusively restricted to original subject matter. A new way of explaining a concept and/or application would be acceptable for publication. This section of the JBLE seeks to provide professors with a more flexible repertoire of course content options, higher standards for lecture material than those frequently met by textbooks, and a vehicle for encouraging the rapid dissemination of research and groundbreaking thought in the field of Business Law. Therefore, the JBLE hopes to encourage a new practice where each time a researcher has a significant Business Law-related article (or series of articles) accepted by a research journal, he or she will also convert that same research into an appropriate lecture-based article suitable for publication in the JBLE.
Review Articles which are carefully written on critical subjects and identify the most relevant bibliography, including overviews of courses and summary articles of relevant books published in the field.
Business Analysis which deals with the corporate sector and provides value to educators and students, business executives and legal practitioners. This section should provide insight and reflections on the law and practice of business and international trade. Topics for papers include real life experience essays by outstanding senior executives and legal practitioners from around the world. By focusing on more wider and general topics relating to business law and its role in the global business environment, non-law students will also be able to gain some knowledge of business law through relevant law and business cases.
