First issue of the student journal “Herald of Legal History” has been published
The first issue of the international academic student journal “Vesnik pravne istorije / Herald of Legal History” (ISSN 2738-0955, eISSN 2738-0963) has been published on the journal’s website: http://ojsnovi.ius.bg.ac.rs/index.php/Vesnik
The print edition is expected in mid-January. Although the first issue has been delayed due to complications caused by the pandemic, the editorial board hopes to reduce the delay for the second issue and eliminate the delay from the third issue on.
The Editor-in-Chief of the journal is Ass. Prof. Dr Nina Kršljanin, and other members of the editorial board are our undergraduate and master students: David Vučinić, as Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Sava Vojnović, Đina Glavčić-Kostić, Miloš Knezević, Anita Stanković and Đorđe Stepić. А large number of domestic and foreign professors – experts in legal history – have also supported the journal with their authority, as members of the international editorial board.
The Herald publishes common types of papers that can be found in other academic journals: primarily articles that present students’ research work, book reviews, as well as various event-related texts (reports from conferences and round tables, necrologues, etc.), but also translations of important texts in the field of legal history, made by students, as well as interviews with renowned scholars in the field of legal history.
The first issue of the Journal presents works on a wide variety of topics – from antiquity to the middle of the 20th century, from private to international law, from the Habsburg monarchy to Pakistan – and the winning paper from the Alan Watson Foundation competition for 2019/20 also occupies a prominent place. А connection between the old and new generations of legal historians is made through translations of works by Aristide Theodorides and Giulio Diena and an interview with Prof. Dr Sima Avramović.
The interview can also be seen in video format here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLG3J6c_FyP92XKMMKWibOWZg0MWreNZxz (No English subtitles for the time being, but they will be added!)
Preparations for the second issue of the Herald are already well under way, and the editorial board is already receiving contributions for the third issue – so we invite all undergraduate and graduate students interested in legal history to contact the address firstname.lastname@example.org, be it with already finished papers or only with ideas and interest!
