Padjadjaran Jurnal Ilmu Hukum (PJIH) was established in 1976 based on SIT. No. 061/SK/ Ditjen PPG/SIT/ 1976 of April 6th, 1976 with Prof. Dr. Mochtar Kusumaatmadja, S.H., LL.M. acting as the first Editor-in-chief. In its first publication, PJIH was named Padjadjaran-majalah ilmu hukum dan pengetahuan masyarakat. The position as chief editor has been assigned to some famous law scholars from our university, namely from Prof. Dr. Mochtar Kusumaatmadja, S.H., LL.M. to Prof. Dr. R. Sri Soemantri M., S.H. and afterwards to Prof. Dr. H. E. Saefullah Wiradipradja, S.H., LL.M.

Due to some issues, PJIH experienced an inactivity for several years. Later on, PJIH was reactivated by Prof. Dr. H. Ahmad M. Ramli –editor-in-chief at that time. Unfortunately, PJIH failed to maintain its periodical publication until 2013. Revitalization was conducted in 2014 to maintain its periodical publication and its quality with an expectation that PJIH will become one of the qualified legal reference sources.

Currently, the new management is led by H. Atip Latifulhayat, S.H., LL.M., Ph.D. as editor-in-chief. This journal is expected to become a high-quality publishing institution that serves as means for intellectual manifestation and development of academicians, pursuant to Padjadjaran University’s goal as World Class University.

In the very first edition of PJIH, Prof. Dr. Mochtar Kusumaatmadja, S.H., LL.M. quoted the words of Philip C. Jessup as motto of PJIH.

“If what the Scholar says is not subject to criticism, it might as well be left unsaid (Philip C. Jessup)”.

Therefore, this journal will become a medium for scholars to accept and give constructive criticism to enhance their expertise.

PJIH has achieved national accreditation based on Decision of Directorate General of Research and Development in Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education No. 32a/E/KPT/2017 of 26 April 2017.
