The Berkeley Journal of Middle Eastern & Islamic Law (JMEIL) is one of only two US-based law journals dedicated to Middle Eastern, Islamic, and comparative law scholarship.

JMEIL publishes academic articles and student comments analyzing the laws of Middle Eastern countries and the Islamic world, the study and application of Islamic jurisprudence, and the impact of law on Muslim and Middle Eastern communities globally. In addition to providing a valuable resource for academics, jurists, practitioners, and students interested in Islamic and Middle Eastern law and policy, JMEIL seeks to provide a forum for the critical discussion of current trends and issues through sponsoring public symposia and lectures.

JMEIL is edited and produced by students at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boat Hall), where the organization is an active participant in the overall student community. JMEIL published its inaugural issue in Spring 2008, and will continue to publish annually each spring.
