About the MJSDL

The McGill Journal of Sustainable Development Law (MJSDL), formerly McGill International Journal of Sustainable Development Law and Policy (JSDLP), provides a forum in which the world’s leading scholars exchange ideas on the intersection between law, development, the environment, economics, and society. Over the past quarter-century, determining how to enrich our world in a more sustainable fashion has become an imperative, especially given the impact of development on the environment and human rights. Despite this pressing need for new ideas, there are few outlets for informed and focused commentary on sustainability, particularly in Canada. In response to this void, students at the Faculty of Law of McGill University established the MJSDL, a student-run, peer-reviewed academic journal, in 2004.
