Law & Ethics of Human Rights Journal
Law & Ethics of Human Rights aspires to analyze and clarify the concepts of moral and legal rights and to contribute to conflict resolution in human rights law. Each issue of Law & Ethics of Human Rights focuses on one contemporary dilemma that raises major moral and legal questions. Each such dilemma is examined using an interdisciplinary approach to human rights law, an approach that strives to create associations between legal provisions and the philosophy underlying them. Top students are invited to sit on the student editorial board.
Law and Ethics of Human Rights is ranked second out of 595 non-US law journals (based on the impact factor of the Washington and Lee School of Law 2016 rankings of law journals). LEHR is published by De Gruyter in both print and online and distributed to tens of thousands of subscribers worldwide.

“Alei Mishpat” – College of Law and Business Law Journal
CLB’s Hebrew law journal “Alei Mishpat” was founded in 1998 and since then has gained respect and recognition as one of the most influential legal journals in Israel. The thirteen volumes published so far deal with a wide range of topics in various fields of law and tangential disciplines (sociology, political science, and more). The forthcoming volume (Volume 14, 2017) focuses on law and the humanities, and includes articles addressing law and literature, law and history, Jewish law, and legal feminism.
The articles published in “Alei Mishpat”make a significant contribution to the legal discourse in Israel, as is demonstrated by the high number of citations of “Alei Mishpat” articles in academic writing and rulings of Israeli courts.
“Alei Mishpat” articles are published after blind academic review and careful editorial work of the journal editorial board, led by elite students from CLB’s law school, under the academic supervision of the Journal’s editor, Prof. Avishalom Westreich. The journal is widely distributed in print and online, and can be accessed on the CLB website and online legal databases.
