Welcome to the Journal of Criminal Justice and Law: A Publication of the Law and Public Policy Section of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (JCJL).
The mission of the JCJL is to publish high quality articles, essays, and book reviews on legal issues in criminal justice and law. Empirical studies, qualitative studies, and research emanating from doctrinal legal/criminal justice studies are all acceptable for review.
The JCJL originated to meet the lack of outlets in criminal justice research dealing with legal issues. Subsequent to its creation in Fall 2016 the journal was adopted by the Law and Public Policy Section of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in Fall 2017.
JCJL is a diamond open access journal: free to read and publish in.
