We are pleased to introduce the Fourth Edition of the Oxford University Undergraduate Law Journal. This Edition features a range of excellent articles on both private and public law topics. Several articles also consider the latest leading cases. We trust that it will prove to be an interesting and informative read.

We would like to thank all the Contributors and the 4th Editorial Board for all their work on this Edition. Special thanks to Professor Peter Mirfield and Associate Professor Jeremias Prassl for taking time out of their busy schedules to share their experiences in the legal publishing world with us in our first ever outreach event. We are also immeasurably indebted to Professor John Cartwright and Associate Professor Paul Davies for their invaluable comments when reviewing the Journal and for helping us to select the prize winner for the Norton Rose Fulbright Prize. This Edition would not have been possible without their help.

The Board is very appreciative of Norton Rose Fulbright’s continued support of the Journal through its sponsorship of the Norton Rose Fulbright Prize (since our 3rd Edition).
