Journal of Law and the Biosciences (JLB) is the first fully open access peer-reviewed legal journal focused on the advances at the intersection of law and the biosciences. A co-venture between Duke University, Harvard Law School, and Stanford University, and published by Oxford University Press, this open access, online, and interdisciplinary academic journal publishes cutting-edge scholarship in this important new field. JLB is published as one volume with three issues per year with new articles posted online on an ongoing basis.

JLB encourages the submission of original manuscripts, responses, essays, and new developments devoted to the examination of issues related to the intersection of law and biosciences, including bioethics, neuroethics, genetics, reproductive technologies, stem cells, enhancement, patent law, and food and drug regulation. The Journal welcomes submissions of varying length, with a theoretical, empirical, practical, or policy oriented focus. For more information about JLB, click here. To submit a manuscript, click here. JLB is actively soliciting articles for the next issue, which will be published on July 8, 2014.
