The Indonesian Journal of Law and Society is the faculty-edited flagship journal of the Faculty of Law, University of Jember, Indonesia, which exclusively publishes all papers in English. It is a refereed journal, all published papers were under a double-blind peer review by academics and experts. This journal publishes international, comparative, and national research and reviews concerned with law and society. While this journal presents leading works from or concerned with Indonesia and other Asian regions, the journal’s scope is intentionally broad, and its geographic coverage includes jurisdictions of developing countries.

All types of manuscripts, from socio-legal, empirical, and doctrinal, will be considered for publication. However, this publication encourages empirical and cross-disciplinary areas of law relating to political science, criminology, history, sociology, human rights, technology, and political economy. It includes articles on law and its relationship with society in developing countries, articles bringing a perspective from developing countries to socio-legal issues of global concern, and articles using developing countries as a starting point for a comparative exploration of law and society topics.

To retain the focus on exploring law and society issues in developing countries, this journal accommodates the intellectual horizon of the discipline that embodies comparative and international nature. If you have prepared a manuscript solely limited to analyzing a national legal system, the Editorial Board suggests you embed it with a comparative or international dimension. Otherwise, your submission may be rejected.

The published papers were subject to a double-blind peer-review process by at least two experts. The Editor's final decision considered the relevance to the journal's aims and scope, the quality of research and writing, and geographical diversity. The novelty of academic contribution was also an essential requirement.
