and promote studies and the knowledge of legal problems related to the
peaceful utilization of nuclear energy under the special aspects of the
protection of man and his environment, to help promote the exchange of
information and to contribute the development of legislation governing the
peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

IJNL will draw together, analyse and propagate on a world-wide basis,
information on nuclear legislation, jurisprudence, international agreements,
other relevant developments in the field of nuclear law.
