Additional Information: The Malawi Law Journal (MLJ) is a fully peer reviewed academic journal, which is published biannually in June and December. It is managed jointly by the Malawi Law Society, the Faculty of Law of the University of Malawi and a team of Malawian scholars based in foreign universities.

The MLJ was founded primarily to address the shortage of academic and practice-oriented literature on legal developments and jurisprudence in Malawi and Africa in general. It publishes articles that explore the interface, tension and congruence between law, human rights, democracy, and development in Malawi and other developing countries, especially those from Africa. It also accepts submissions analysing recent judicial decisions, new legislation and current law reform proposals in the region. Articles of a comparative nature, which are locally relevant, and those dealing with current legal issues of regional importance are considered.
