Extended Deadline: Submissions to Volume 6, Issue 2 (October 2017)

The Editorial Board has decided to extend the deadline for submissions to the March 2017 edition of the UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence until Friday 5 May


This theme of this issue ‘Crisis and the Law’. The Editorial Board welcomes submissions that engage with this general theme. It is broadly conceived, covering a range of political, economic, social, environmental and cultural issues, and leaves scope for any area of law or jurisprudence (domestic, regional or international) that is deemed to be crisis-related. The following is a non-exhaustive list of possible topics:

• ‘Brexit’;
• Constitutional issues; 
• Environmental protection; 
• Financial regulation;
• Human rights;
• Law and development;
• Multilateralism;
• Refugees and immigration;
• Technology and the law;
• Terrorism;
• War.

Submissions could be theoretical, doctrinal or aimed at practice. Concretely, the Journal seeks to publish pieces that either articulate the concept of crisis within the law or how the law deals with current crises. Articles which challenge existing boundaries in law or jurisprudence or how legal institutions work and are shaped by crises are also welcome.


We accept articles of between 8,000-12,000 words, case notes of 6,000-8,000 words and book reviews of 1,000-2,000 words. All submissions must comply with the Oxford University Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA). Contributions that have already been published or that are under consideration for publication in other journals will not be considered. The deadline for submissions is Friday 5 May. Manuscripts must be uploaded via the submissions section on our website.
