The study of law reform is fundamentally about ensuring that the legal system evolves in a way that is just, efficient, and reflective of society’s values and needs. It involves continuous reflection, critique, and practical engagement with the processes of law to achieve better outcomes for all members of society.

International law serves to regulate the activities between states and other international actors in a wide range of fields, aiming to create a basis for stable and organized international relations, since we all share the same planet, for better or for worse.

Comparative law is a method of legal study that examines the differences and similarities between the laws of different countries, cultures, or legal systems. The purpose of comparative law extends beyond mere academic inquiry; it plays a crucial role in a variety of practical, legal, and legislative contexts.

The Council on International Law and Politics brings together the disciplines of international and comparative law and applies them in the context of law reform. CILP can be contracted to provide background studies before law reforms are initiated or for managerial support for and critical comment on ongoing law reform projects.

As of 2024, CILP will be cooperating with the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in the publication of the European Journal of Law Reform. As a result, for the first time ever, and hopefully for many years to come, the electronic version of the EJLR will be available free of charge / open access.
