Please note that the next submission window for blog articles will open in September 2020.
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 750 words, and generally no longer than 1,500 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.
