Because of its quarterly publication schedule, articles submitted to the journal Les Cahiers de droit can be published quickly. Among the other university-based law journals published in Québec, only the McGill Law Journal also appears quarterly. In addition, the efficient editorial process ensures that the issues are published punctually and regularly.
The editorial process has two basic stages. First, the accuracy of the sources and references is checked by law students. Second, the text is revised by a professional linguist, Hélène Dumais, whose professional reputation is unrivalled. Spelling and typographical errors are corrected immediately, and suggestions for improvements to the syntax or style are submitted to the author to be accepted or rejected.
The journal can also take responsibility for having abstracts translated by an experienced translator.
