University College London Journal of Law and Jurisprudence (UCLJLJ) 


The UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence is a law journal run by students of the UCL Faculty of Laws.  The Editorial Board is pleased to announce an EXTENDED call for submissions for publication in Autumn 2021.  The board welcomes papers covering all areas of law and jurisprudence.  All submissions are assessed through double blind peer review and the Journal is available open access. 

Successful submissions will add an original contribution to the legal field or propose an answer to a complex and/or yet unanswered legal question.  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, inclusive of footnotes or other supporting text.  Contributions that have already been published, online or otherwise, or that are under consideration for publication in other journals will not be considered.  All submissions must be appropriately referenced and comply with the Oxford University Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA). 

Furthermore, articles must be submitted in Microsoft Word format and include an abstract of approximately 150 words.  Journal submissions are expected to meet the standards for publication at the time of submission.  You can find more information about the expectations of journal submissions, including published articles from prior years, at: https://student-journals.ucl.ac.uk/laj/issues/

EXTENSION:  The deadline for submissions has been extended until Sunday, 25 April 2021.  Submissions after this date will not be considered.

Manuscripts must be uploaded via the submissions section on our website (https://student-journals.ucl.ac.uk/laj/submissions/).  Users will be required to register on the UCLJLJ website prior to submitting an article.  We do not accept submissions via email.  Authors should submit an anonymous version of the manuscript, stripped of all identifying references to the author(s) for peer review.
