Blog Submission Guidelines

The Oxford University Undergraduate Law Blog

The Oxford University Undergraduate Law Blog (OUULB) is a forum for the exchange of legal ideas. We are looking for articles about any issue of law, or notes about a recent case, recent legislation or recent legal developments. There is no requirement that the submission must concern a subject within the scope of the Oxford Law Syllabus.

The OUULB welcomes submissions of the following types:

  • Opinion pieces, which advance a personal viewpoint on a current issue or debate in law; and
  • Current awareness pieces, which report on recent notable developments in legislation or case law.

General Guidelines for all Contributors:

  • Submissions must be from current undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Oxford. Submissions should be the original work of the contributor.
  • As far as possible, authors should link relevant sources in the text. Cases and other paywalled sources should be included in the footnotes.
  • Submissions should be no shorter than 1250 words, and no longer than 1,750 words. If you have a longer piece of writing you wish to submit as a blog post, please contact us to discuss possible arrangements.
  • Submissions should not contain content that could be considered offensive, abusive, derogatory or potentially defamatory.
  • We accept submissions on a rolling basis, with the hope of publishing two posts a month on the OUULB.
