The Caribbean Law Review Exclusively Relaunches on vLex

25 April 2024vLexPartnerships

vLex subscribers will soon have access to the new, relaunched, Caribbean Law Review (CLR) through vLex’s intelligent legal research platform, alongside CLR’s previous editions dating back to 1991.

Founded in 1991, the Caribbean Law Review is the University of the West Indies Faculty of Law’s biannual flagship journal, publishing high-quality scholarship and commentary on Commonwealth Caribbean Law. vLex is proud to work with CLR in its mission of disseminating Caribbean legal scholarship by improving the accessibility and discoverability of CLR articles with cutting-edge research technology.

The CLR is strategically and historically significant to the Caribbean; taking a uniquely Caribbean-centric perspective rather than the comparative angle commonly adopted by publications outside the region. The journal’s articles are frequently cited by courts and legal scholars.

The CLR’s relaunch on May 24 solidified its commitment to authoritative, peer-reviewed, analysis on Caribbean legal issues. The relaunch issue showcases its multidisciplinary approach – incorporating substantive law, policy, and socio-legal studies. Readers will find a variety of articles, including a discussion about the ethics of health-promoting taxes, an overview of regulations governing noncommunicable diseases, and an analysis of sugar tax legislation.

In addition to articles by legal experts and scholars, the journal includes in-depth commentary, case notes, and book reviews of recent and upcoming legal titles. Academics, lawyers, judges, and other legal professionals rely on CLR to keep up with developments and trends in Caribbean law and jurisprudence.

The relaunch is a significant milestone in CLR’s mission to foster and make Caribbean legal scholarship available more widely – also a key factor in the journal’s decision to become open access in 2021. As with the rest of the publications in vLex’s extensive Caribbean Law offering, CLR is enhanced by innovative vLex research technologies and features that make articles even more discoverable and accessible to researchers. CLR is also linked to and from vLex’s wider global repository of trusted legal information, further improving its discoverability.
