What is the GħSL Online Law Journal?

GħSL’s Online Law Journal serves as a web-based publication directed at students of law and legal professionals in Malta. While the prestigious law journal “Id-Dritt” is published on an annual basis, the aim of the Online Law Journal is to create and consolidate GħSL’s position online as a current and fast-paced legal source. The Online Law Journal serves as a forum for students and professionals alike to contribute research and articles to the ever-expanding online legal library that GħSL brings to the public.


With easy access and no need for subscription, the Online Law Journal is innovative in the local legal sector, open to all persons with an interest in legal developments in Malta. Students, legal professionals and academics are invited to contribute their analyses of developments in Maltese and international law.

How does it work? It is your contribution that helps the Online Law Journal grow and flourish. Articles, ideas, and comments on legal issues are all relevant to creating and furthering discussions on legal matters. Calls for articles will be issued by the Faculty of Laws at the University of Malta, the Chamber of Advocates, and on the GħSL website but contributions are welcome at any time.
