Basic information

The call for papers for the special dossier "Law and Technology: Changes in the Legal World and Dilemmas of Innovation" can be accessed here (English version) or here (Spanish version). The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2019.

The Direito GV Law Review publishes original articles with multiple theoretical and methodological approaches, including interdisciplinary articles and texts produced from an applied research. Articles that contribute to theoretical, methodological and empirical innovation, especially in the fields of Law & Development, Law & Society and Law & Economics are especially considered. The Journal seeks articles that examine the role of law, legal institutions, and national and international legal systems in social and economic development processes, particularly in developing countries, emerging markets and transition nations, and seek to determine how law can inhibit or promote desired changes.

The Direito GV Law Review also publishes original reviews and translations. The reviews section aims to call readers' attention to works published in the last 24 months (from the review's date of submission). The review also must establish the relevance of the work for the field in which it is inserted and elicit critical discussions about it. Reviews should privilege titles of academic interest over professional publications. Mainly descriptive reviews that only summarize the argument of the work will not be accepted. The translations section privileges classic works or texts of difficult access to Brazilian readers. They are selected by analyzing the relevance and technical quality of the translated text.

The journal is published in digital format (ISSN 2317-6172), every four months.

Its abbreviated title is Rev. direito GV, which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
