Basically the article should be an original piece of work with necessary acknowledgments of sources and links where appropriate. There is no limit on length as far as online publication is concerned but not more than 20 pages (A4) if meant for print publication.
The writer should state his/her preference whether print or online. He/she can forward to us his/her paper and it will be reviewed by the Senior Editors and they will decide whether it is suitable for publication and slot it into the relevant issue.
The writer will receive a copy of the journal once it has been published.
If it is published online only then we will inform him/her of our online LNS citation which is also recognised by the legal fraternity.
Sometimes due to page constraint, we will opt to publish online first and later, the print editors may carry it in the journal once they are able to slot it in.
You may forward ur article directly to my email below.

The writer may still publish it elsewhere but with our prior written consent and the other publisher(s) must acknowledge that the article is published with permission of the Malaysian Current Law Journal Sdn Bhd (if it has already been published in print form) or CLJ Legal Network Sdn Bhd (if published online only).
The writer’s name will still be retained on the face of the article as it is still her work but only the copyright (publishing rights) will be under CLJ’s name.
This is a standard policy amongst publishers.
