Mizan Law Review receives a certificate of accreditation 

Mizan Law Review, one of St. Mary’s University’s bi-annual journals, received a certificate of accreditation at the event organized by the FDRE Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MoSHE) on July 14, 2021 at Intercontinental Addis Hotel, Addis Ababa.  



Mizan Law Review got accredited by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education after it underwent a rigorous evaluation by the Ethiopian Academy of Sciences. According to MoSHE, of the 32 journals submitted for evaluation in the first round, 16 of them met the requirements and were accredited.  



At the event, His Excellency Professor Afework Kassu, State Minister, Ministry of Science and Higher Education, appreciated the institutions, whose journals were accredited, for working hard toward ensuring quality and sustainability of their respective publications. He also mentioned that the acknowledgement his Ministry has given to these journals would encourage others to follow suit.  

Mizan Law Review is a bi-annual journal which was first published by the then Faculty of Law a decade and a half ago. Although the Faculty of Law was closed due to the Government’s decision to ban private higher education institutions from offering law and education degree programs in August 2010, the Faculty was restructured as a Center for Law in Sustainable Development (CLiSD) and has continued the publication of the journal to date without any interruption while maintaining the quality of its contents.
