Welcome to the Nordic Journal of European Law         

The Nordic Journal of European Law (NJEL) is an open-access and peer reviewed journal of European law with a Nordic perspective founded and managed by researchers at the Faculty of Law at Lund University, in cooperation with other Nordic universities and specifically with the University of Southern Denmark, the University of Helsinki, the University of Bergen and Reykjavik University. The Journal is published on a bi-annual basis via an open access format on the current webpage.
