About the Journal

ex ante offers young legal scholars a platform on which they can publish their ideas and research results.

We want to provide both academics and practitioners with innovative thoughts on current issues: Fresh ideas are to grasp and solve new or little-noticed legal aspects of current topics. We offer young legal scholars the opportunity to gather their first publication experiences according to high quality, scientific standards.

ex ante is not restricted to a specific area of law, but is concerned with current issues in the society across all fields of law. In addition to the topic-specific contributions as the focus of the respective issues, ex ante also contains thematically independent treatises. Furthermore, ex ante is multilingual: the publication languages are German, French, and English.
