Theoretical Inquiries in Law

Theoretical Inquiries in Law

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 18, Number 2 (July 2017), Sovereignty and Property.


Forthcoming issues will include Volume 19, Number 1 (January 2018), Fifty Years of Class Actions - A Global Perspective  and Volume 19 Number 2 (July 2018), The Tragedy of the Commons at 50: Context, Precedents, and Afterlife.


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 conferences are Tragedy of the Commons at 50: Context, Precedents and Afterlife (28-30 June 2017), organized by Dr. David Shorr and Prof. Carol Rose; and  The Problem of Theorizing Privacy (8-9 January, 2018), organized by Prof. Michael Birnhack, Julie E. Cohen & Mireille Hildebrandt.
