The Journal of Corporate and Commercial Law & Practice (JCCL& P)

The Journal of Corporate and Commercial Law & Practice (JCCL&P) is making a call from legal academics, legal practitioners, policy makers and legal scholars as well as law students (preferably those pursuing higher degrees) to submit high quality thoroughly researched papers in all aspects of corporate and commercial law to be considered for publication.

The JCCL&P provides a platform and a forum for scholarship on corporate and commercial law and practice, broadly construed. The JCCL&P aims to publish contributions in the area of corporate and commercial law and practice, with specific emphasis on the application, not superimposition, of constitutional law, foreign law and public policy imperatives in helping the interpretation, improvement and development of novel corporate and commercial law principles.

Articles published in the journal are subject to rigorous double peer review. The primary distinguishing feature of this journal is its publication of practice notes on topical practical corporate and commercial legal subjects. For this reason, legal practitioners are particularly encouraged to submit papers that reflect on their practice.

Contributors are asked to follow the ‘Expanded Style Guide for the Journal of Corporate and Commercial Law & Practice’.

All correspondence concerning contributions should be addressed to Prof Tshepo H Mongalo (Co-Managing Editor) by email:
