Writing an article or casenote for the Journal is an excellent way to deepen one’s understanding of the relevant subject area and develop crucial skills for academic writing or legal practice. Needless to say, having a “Publications” section in one’s CV is rare and has the potential to set oneself apart from the herd.
If you wish to submit a potential Article for the next edition of the Journal, please see our submission guidelines below:
We are looking for articles about any specific element of law, or notes about a recent case, recent legislation or recent legal developments. Articles should be something more than a mere tutorial essay, both in terms of length and depth of academic treatment of the material. The submission should concern any subject within the scope of Oxford Moderations Syllabus or the Final Honours School syllabus. A comprehensive list of these subjects can be found here.
Submissions should be no shorter than 3,000 words, and generally no longer than 6,000 words. If you have a longer piece of writing you may want to submit, feel free to contact us to discuss possible arrangements.
We accept submissions on a rolling basis, with the hope of publishing two editions of the Journal every year. Submissions for the upcoming 8th edition of the Journal are now closed, but we are more than happy to consider articles for the 9th edition of the Journal which will be published later this year.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submissions!
