The Columbia Journal of European Law (CJEL) is one of the only journals in the United States devoted exclusively to European Law and enjoys a prominent and influential place in the international legal community. It currently ranks among the top five foreign and civil law journals in the country, and is the single most cited European Law journal in North America. Because of its prominence in the field, CJEL is read widely across Europe and North America.
Published under the auspices of The European Legal Studies Center at Columbia Law School, Columbia students are entirely responsible for CJEL's publication. CJEL has a collaborative partnership with the Catholic University in Leuven, Belgium, which keeps it abreast of recent developments in EU legislation and the case law of the European Court of Justice.
CJEL publishes three issues per year - Winter, Spring, and Summer and contains articles exploring any dimension of European Law in its broadest sense. This includes the law of the European Union and also law at the national or regional levels, as well as jurisprudential questions relevant to the development of law and legal institutions in Europe. The articles cover a range of issues and are authored by leading academics and practitioners. Many articles are comparative in nature and directly relevant to the United States.
In 2009, CJEL launched an online component, CJEL Online, to supplement the print journal.  It is published in Spring and Fall .  The online supplement is intended to allow a more rapid exploration of important case law and legislative developments, in order to reflect the ever increasing pace of the dissemination of legal information in the modern era.
