Revue Juridique de l'Environnement

Revue Juridique de l'Environnement

Founded in 1976 by Professor Emeritus Michel Prieur, the Revue Juridique de l'Environnement (RJE), a publication of the Société Française pour le Droit de l'Environnement, is a doctrinal journal and a key reference in environmental law. It is currently edited by Professors Éric Naim-Gesbert and Jessica Makowiak, with Laurence Renard providing the editorial secretariat.

In four annual issues and a special issue generally devoted to a particular theme, it seeks to cover the whole field from a French, European, international and comparative perspective.

The RJE is a peer-reviewed journal.

The journal's objectives are to develop knowledge of environmental law among all the scientific, professional and associative circles concerned and to develop comparative law as well as scientific contacts and cooperation with foreign countries and international bodies. Since 2010, following the absorption of the Revue européenne de droit de l'environnement, the RJE has been enriched by opening up more systematically to European Union law, formalising the fact that environmental law is not only increasingly globalised but also increasingly integrated.

The Revue Juridique de l'Environnement keeps readers abreast of the latest developments in environmental law and the doctrinal debates that are taking place in the field, through articles on legal doctrine, thematic columns (nature protection, pollution and nuisance, biotechnology, climate law, constitutional environmental law, town planning, etc.) and case law commentaries.

Aims and scope of the Revue Juridique de l'Environnement

Founded in 1976 by Professor Emeritus Michel Prieur, the Revue Juridique de l'Environnement, published by the French Society for Environmental Law, is the essential reference on contemporary environmental law.

In four annual issues and one special issue, it covers the whole range of environmental law, from French law to international, European and foreign law. Its inevitable cross-disciplinary nature is also presented in all its facets: civil, commercial, criminal, tax, administrative, etc.

From the outset, the main aim has been to place the texts and case law in their theoretical context, so as to provide a better understanding of this young and developing body of law: the Revue Juridique de l'Environnement essentially contains studies written by the best university specialists or practitioners. Focusing on the fundamentals of the law, it provides the keys to understanding the complexity of the subject and the issues that are so vital to our times. Since 2013, the RJE has been strengthened by the establishment of a scientific directorate.

The journal includes:

  • editorials ;
  • articles on legal doctrine ;
  • thematic columns (e.g. GMO law) or by branch of law (constitutional law, European law, international law, civil law, business law, labour law, tax law, town planning law, etc.);
  • case law published in extenso with conclusions and/or comments;
  • panoramas of case law on issues that give rise to a great deal of litigation: woods and forests, living environment, public enquiries, water, classified installations, etc. These panoramas are made up of significant extracts from decisions by all the courts, the interest of which is highlighted by brief comments;
  • opinion pieces
  • summaries of environmental law theses;
  • bibliographical notes;
  • annual tables.
