The IDF Law Review, published by the Israel Defense Forces Military School of Law, aims to serve both as an academic and professional research tool, and as a mechanism for facilitating debate and innovative ideas in the fields of Military Law, the Laws of War, Operational Law, as well as Criminal, Constitutional and other International Law issues relating to military activities.
A copy of the 2007-2008 Call for Papers is below. Although the editors already have most of the articles for the 2007-2008 edition, they are still accepting articles that are at an advanced/publishable stage. Their publishing target is winter 2008.
They are also collecting articles for the 2009-2010 edition of the IDF Law Review, for which they are accepting contribution on a rolling basis (i.e. no deadline yet).
