About TIL Journal

Theoretical Inquiries in Law (TIL) is a biannual English-language law journal published by the Cegla Center for Interdisciplinary Research of the Law at the Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University. The journal specializes in the application to legal problems of insights developed in other disciplines, such as moral and political theory, epistemology, history, cultural studies, social sciences, economics and game theory, probability theory, and cognitive psychology.


The range of issues dealt with by the journal is virtually unlimited, in line with its commitment to the cross-disciplinary cultivation of ideas. Contributors to the journal are distinguished legal scholars working in different legal areas. The journal also strives to offer a forum for contributions to legal theory by scholars working in disciplines outside of law.


TIL has the highest impact factor among all non-U.S. law reviews, and is well-known and much cited in Israel and all over the world.


Every year, TIL publishes one volume which is comprised of two separate issues. Each issue contains about eight to fifteen articles dedicated to a distinctive topic of law or legal theory, contributing groundbreaking research and new insights in the field. Recent topics include legal responses to the contemporary family, international cooperation regarding climate change, financial regulation, the legitimacy of international courts, beyond the public and private distinctions, and more.


The current issue, Volume 22, Number 1 (January 2021), Legal Discontinuity .

Volume 22, Number 2 (July 2021), How Law Changes What You Want.

Volume 23, Number 1 (January 2022), The Global Law Market.


All issues and articles are based on biannual international conferences that are held by the Cegla Center for Interdisciplinary Research of the Law. The conferences are organized by prominent researchers (who also serve as guest editors). Each conference is dedicated to a specific field, and includes the most distinctive researchers in that field.


The forthcoming conference is Bilateral Labor Agreements and Migrant Workers’ Rights: Starting a Conversation, (June 6-8, 2021), Organized by Prof. Hila Shamir (Law Faculty, Tel Aviv University) and Prof. Adam Chilton (University of Chicago Law School) and Dr. Tamar Megiddo.


We recommend subscribing to our mailing list in order to receive detailed conference information.


Researchers interested in organizing a conference are invited to contact Prof. Yishai Blank, the Director of the Cegla Center at: yblank@tauex.tau.ac.il.


TIL is available in electronic form on the De Gruyter law database. It also appears in HeinOnlineLexisWestlaw and LegalTrac.
