The McGill Journal of Dispute Resolution (French title: Revue de règlement des différends de McGill) is a scholarly legal publication affiliated with the student body of the McGill University Faculty of Law in Montreal, Quebec. It is a bilingual peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to the presentation of scholarship in the fields of arbitration, mediation, facilitation, negotiation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

The journal is run by law students at the Faculty under the current supervision of well-regarded Canadian arbitration scholar and jurist Fabien Gélinas. Its mission is to promote discourse surrounding alternative forms of dispute resolution between scholars, practitioners, students and the public at large through the provision of free high-quality peer-reviewed scholarship.[1]

The journal's first volume was published in 2014. In short order, it has become a forum for important voices in the field of international arbitration both in Canada and internationally, publishing interviews and scholarship by public figures like Dick Pound, Yves Fortier, Armand De Mestral, David W. Rivkin, and Mokhtar Lamani.[2][3]

The journal is available on SSRN, LexisNexis, CanLii, and WestLaw.

The McGill Journal of Dispute Resolution's logo depicts the Greek goddess Rhea carrying a staff adorned with a fleur de lys and holding a tome inscribed with the Greek word αρμονία (meaning harmony) astride a lion on a field of royal blue. Rhea was selected based on her role in the ancient Greek myth of Persephone, in which she mediated a resolution of the conflict between Hades and Demeter that allowed Persephone to spend half of the year with her mother and half with Hades.

The logo also incorporates symbolism that reflects the journal’s home in Montréal, Québec, Canada. The style of the lion reflects Canada’s ties to the Crown and the Common Law, while the fleur-de-lys represents both the province of Québec and the Civil Law. This symbolism also reveals the bilingual, transnational, transsystemic nature of the journal.
