✒️ Call for papers for Volume 5 (2020)

1. Presentation of the Revue

The Revue Juridique étudiante de l’Université de Montréal (RJEUM) is a scientific and bilingual e-journal (rjeum.openum.ca) aimed at the diffusion of law students’ research. The Revue aims to offer young researchers and thinkers of law an essential visibility to their personal and academic development. It offers its authors great exposure since its content is also distributed by the Société québécoise d'information juridique (SOQUIJ). The Revue hopes to inspire academic vocations while also sensitizing students to the importance of doctrine, a cornerstone and fundamental source of law. The Revue looks forward to opening an electronic window into current research while producing quality content that will contribute to the development and deepening of legal knowledge.

2. Editorial Policy of the Revue

The Revue Juridique étudiante de l’Université de Montréal adheres to a strictly independent policy. Managed by students, for students, all the published material is evaluated anonymously by its Reading Committee or externally in partnership with academic and legal experts. The direction and the editorial board take no responsibility for the opinions expressed by authors in their contributions.
