Journal of Laws & Innovation (JLI)

Vols. 1-3 (2019-2020)

Published by University of Pennsylvania Law School

The Journal of Law & Innovation is a student-edited journal at the University of Pennsylvania Law School that focuses on issues related to law, innovation, and technology. Unlike most law school journals, JLI benefits from a high level of faculty involvement. The journal is published as a single-issue journal each year, in a symposium format. During the Fall semester, journal members work with the faculty editor(s) in a seminar to read prominent legal scholarship on the topic and learn how to critically analyze legal scholarship. During the Spring semester, journal members assist with the running and organization of a major symposium on the topic, work with the symposium authors to substantively edit their pieces, and help bring the journal to print before the end of the academic year.

Internally, the goal of the Journal of Law & Innovation is to provide its technologically-focused student-members with a substantive publication experience, an opportunity for close collaboration with Penn Law faculty members, and an extended foray into academia. Externally, the journal seeks to produce novel legal scholarship that explores the intersection of law and technology. Each year, JLI purposefully chooses a volume topic centered on a fast-evolving and unsettled area of law. The resulting author contributions allow academics and practitioners to remain up to date on the most pressing ways in which recent societal technological development have and will impact legal regimes (and vice versa).

Revista de Bioetica y Derecho

Vols. 1-50 (2004-2020)

Published by University of Barcelona

Revista de Bioetica y Derecho (Journal of Bioethics and Law) is a peer-edited journal of the University of Barcelona, published by the Observatory of Bioethics and Law (OBD). The current publication is the result of the fusion of two journals in 2016: Revista de Bioetica y Derecho, created in 2004 at the initiative of OBD with the support of the Master in Bioethics and Law of the University of Barcelona; and the journal Perspectivas Bioeticas of the Bioethics Programme of the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences (FLACSO, Argentina).

The journal aims to provide rigorous and contrasted scientific information as well as rational and reasonable humanist arguments that contribute to defining and selecting bioethical problems and opening the social debate to citizen participation. The publication is thus intended for all those interested in bioethics applied to health, safety, new technologies and the environment, among other areas, and is open to the participation of scholars and the promotion of public debate.
