Journal History

The UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence is a law journal edited and published by students of UCL Laws. The Journal publishes scholarly contributions from academics, researchers and practitioners, as well as showcasing outstanding research of post-graduate students at UCL. It accepts submissions in all areas of law and jurisprudence, reflecting the diverse and innovative areas of research at UCL Laws, and its distinguished tradition of legal philosophy. The Journal is a generalist publication, but runs occasional themed issues. The Board of Editors assesses all submissions through a double blind peer review. From 2015, it will be published twice annually and will soon be available through open access.

The Journal’s primary aim is to make a high-quality contribution to current debates on local and global issues of law and jurisprudence. It also gives students the opportunity to edit and publish an outstanding law review, and showcases research undertaken by graduate students of UCL Laws. Finally, the Journal seeks to add to the vibrant intellectual life of UCL’s world leading law school, a place where originality and innovation are highly prized, and where the shared pursuit of ideas remains fundamental to the Faculty’s continuing success.

The Journal launches calls for papers for each issue and asks that people interested in submitting check the Announcements page for further information and deadlines.
