Information about the research book series:
The Law Institute at the University of Iceland has since 2005 published a series of books. The objective is to publish longer academic essays on legal matters, which are less likely to appear in the traditional law journals such as the Icelandic Law Journal and Úlfljótur, the Law Journal of The Law Students Association.
The purpose of the series, is thus primarily intended to make available material which has theoretical and practical value for lawyers and others, but would perhaps not be released otherwise. It is also expected that work which is the result of research in law and needed e.g. for teaching but not in it´s final version or ready for final publishing, will be published in the series. This is common pracice in legal research in the Nordic countries.
