Aim & Scope: The Journal of Energy & Natural Resources Law (JERL) of the International Bar Association’s (IBA) Section on Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law (SEERIL) is the leading refereed journal in the field of energy and natural resources law. Featuring contributions from some of the finest academic minds and most successful practitioners in this area of study, JERL offers global coverage of energy and natural resources issues, research and commentary.

JERL features articles that illuminate legal problems or issues currently faced by governments, companies and international organisations by setting them within their general legal, economic or political context. Areas covered include: oil and gas law; mineral law (covering legal questions relating to minerals, including non-fuel minerals and the nuclear fuel cycle); coal law; water law; and renewable energy law (including legal aspects of matters such as hydro and geothermal power, solar, tidal, wind and ocean energy, and timber and agricultural waste use).

First launched in January 1983 under the editorship of Professor Terence Daintith, now a Professional Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in London, JERL is both a practitioner and an academic journal. It publishes articles that record the experience of lawyers resolving practical problems or developing legal devices or techniques, as well as contributions from academics and their research. JERL is distributed to all members of IBA SEERIL.

JERL’s current Editor is Professor Don C Smith, Director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Program at the University of Denver (US) Sturm College of Law where he teaches Comparative Environmental Law. All submitted articles are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by at least two independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer review is double blind. The Editor is assisted by the Journal Board and Editorial Advisory Committee, comprised of members of the Academic Advisory Group (AAG) of IBA SEERIL. Together, they bring to the journal an unsurpassed expertise in all areas of energy and natural resources law.
