The International Association of Labour Law Journals (IALLJ) was established for the following purposes:

  1. Advancing research and scholarship in the fields of labour and employment law;
  2. Encouraging the exchange of information regarding all aspects of the publishing process;
  3. Promoting closer relations among editors of national and international labour and employment law journals.

The late renowned Professor Marco Biagi of the University of Modena, Italy was the first President, and was instrumental in establishing the Association as a Club of Labour Law Journals. During the tenure (2004-2007) of his successor, Jeffrey Sack, Q.C., the Club was reconstituted as an Association, and its membership expanded from 12 to 21 Journals. At the same time, the website for the Assocation was established. As of 2015, there are 27 member journals.

Papers prepared for Association meetings are published by the Comparative Labour Law & Policy Journal and by The International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations.
