About the Journal

Aim and Scope of the journal: The Legestic is an international, peer-reviewed scientific scholar journal publishing high-quality original articles. The journal focuses on the theory, philosophy and practice of legislation.  The journal focuses primarily on legislation, discussion of current legal issues and proposals for changes to legislation. Legestic accepts articles and reviews articles from all areas of private and public law, such as civil law, criminal law, state law, civil law, business law, intellectual property law, medical law, culture and sports law and other areas of law. In the Legestic journal, we publish comments on legal regulations, critical opinions, reflections, expert analyses, case law analyses, and studies on legislation's impact on citizens' and institutions' functioning. Articles can concentrate on legislative issues within a single jurisdiction but we prefer if they are relevant to other jurisdictions as well. Also, it is possible to publish high-quality, interdisciplinary articles by scholars in the Legestic journal. A combination of other relevant disciplines, such as legislative studies and political science, public policy, regulation, governance, economics, culture and sport, is of interest to our readers. We welcome articles created by an international collective of authors that bring a new perspective to solving theoretical aspects of law and practical legal issues.
