We welcome you to another issue of Kutafin Law Review, which with a change in Editorial leadership and team continues in our new directions in 2019 and beyond.
The theme of international moot court competitions is important. Within our own university our Rector has created the Department of Moot Competitions, and our students continue with great success. Our leading article looks at the scientific research matters for legal and education issues associated with this work. This will be of interest to our readers in other
universities who also send teams to compete in these competitions — which cover both advanced theoretical and practical law.
We also look at topics of taxation — in particular the topic of double tax treaties, tax avoidance and the new trend of “beneficial ownership” which is developing as a very important anti-corruption topic.
We have made further improvements to our “Guidelines for Writers”, and we are regularly adding new content to our website. In particular, we are delighted to welcome five extremely distinguished new members to our International Academic Council. Our new colleagues share our vision for developing legal scholarship in the English language, particularly for nonnative speakers of English — especially to encourage the ability to apply for and study at the universities they represent. We are delighted to welcome to our team the following eminent scholars:
Professor Dr. Trevor Hartley (Emeritus Professor of Law at London University’s London School of Economics and Political Science, UK),
Professor Dr. Martin Dixon (Professor of the Law of Real Property at University of Cambridge, UK),
Professor Dr. Ruth Chang (Professor of Jurisprudence, University of Oxford, UK),
Professor Dr. Floris De-Witte (Professor of European Law and Political Theory at London University’s London School of Economics, UK),
Professor Adrian Briggs QC (Hon) (Professor of Private International Law at Oxford University UK, and Barrister at Blackstone Chambers, Temple, London UK).
Over the forthcoming months, the Editorial Staff will continue our contacts with our distinguished readers and contributors, with the purposes of building yet further our international cooperation and facilitating scholarly contributions. We most cordially invite you — if this Journal is in your hands — to write and make contact with the Editorial Office, who will be most delighted to hear from you.
Readers of our website will know that Kutafin Law Review is particularly interested in developing English language top-level legal scholarship amongst Russian young academics and their high-level students — and presenting it to the world. Working in co-authorship, we encourage students and their teachers to contribute articles. You will find a warm welcome at our Journal, which as in everything we do, we follow our university motto — “not for school but for life.” We will give you every encouragement and support to help you to develop your legal scholarship skills into real abilities that you can use outside university.
Our proof reading service is free, and as a first step, we return your manuscript with helpful and constructive comments before the formal Peer Review process begins. Please get in touch with us to discuss any ideas you have and find out how we can help.
With our very best wishes from everybody at Kutafin Law Review and Kutafin Moscow State Law University.
