We are pleased to introduce the first volume of the 6th Edition of the Oxford University Undergraduate Law Journal. This year, due to increasing readership and a widening pool of outstanding submissions the Journal will be publishing two volumes as part of the 6th Edition instead of just one. For this Edition, we have drawn from a large pool of quality submissions by students from law schools across the United Kingdom. This is only possible because of the conscientious efforts by our Editors, Jean and Govind, and their team of Associate Editors. 

We are also pleased to announce our newest sponsorhip developments. Norton Rose Fulbright has kindly agreed to double their sponsorship of the Norton Rose Fulbright Prize. This prize is awarded to the best private law submission to the Journal. In this respect, would like to thank Associate Professor Luke Rostill for selecting the prize-winner. This year's recipient is Thomas Foxton.
