  • V. Review of books
  • VI. Bibliography (Survey of journals)

The Yearbook appears both in printed (paper) and in Internet version. 

The deadline for the submission is Friday 31 May 2013.

The recommended length of articles is 10 to 15 pages in English, including summary (in Czech or another language) the recommended style OSCOLA, Times New Roman font, line-spacing 1.5. We also welcome shorter comments, information and book reviews. The CYIL is a peer-reviewed journal.

Czech Yearbook of Public & Private International Law (Vol.3) - 2012 was issued

06.11.2012 20:23

This Czech Yearbook is a scholarly publication of the Czech Society of International Law, acting in cooperation with the Czech Branch of the International Law Association. According to its Statute, the CSIL covers both Public and Private International Law in its Czech Yearbook, including some aspects of European law.

The CSIL publishes the Yearbook both in printed and electronics versions.

For the third volume, we are proud to offer the electronic version in a userfriendly format of the E-book, suitable for PCs, notebooks and tablets. The Czech Yearbook stems from the academic tradition but it is also open to new technologies.

As usual, the authors of this publication come from the leading Czech academic and other institutions, such as Charles University in Prague, Masaryk University in Brno, Palacky University in Olomouc, the Institute of Law of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the University of Economics in Prague, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its Institute of International Relations, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, as well as from private law firms.

However, the editors keep the Czech Yearbook open to authors from abroad. More than in the two previous years, this volume includes contributions of foreign professors and researchers, coming from or teaching in Austria, Iceland, Montenegro, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine and the USA. In keeping the Yearbook open, we want it to become not only Czech but also a European and international project, the Prague-based platform for dialogue of scholars and practitioners of international law.

This publication appears thanks to the financial subsidy to the Czech Society of International Law from the Council of Scientific Societies of the Czech Republic.

We are also grateful for generous financial support from the Prague branch of the law firm Weil, Gotshal and Manges.

We wish that this volume of the Czech Yearbook finds many interested readers and we are looking forward to new authors and new contributions for the next volume.
