Call for Submissions

All University of London students are eligible to publish in the UCL Jurisprudence Review. Committed to providing a platform for outstanding student essays, the Review has pledged 2 positions to essays from non-UCL students.

The UCL Jurisprudence Review calls for papers for its 2010 volume, to be published in September 2010. We are interested in insightful and original literature, which is not merely descriptive. Here the Faculty Editor, the Editor-in-Chief and the Proofreaders have discretion on what would make a suitable entry for the publication. The Faculty Editor makes the ultimate decision. You may contact the Editor-in-Chief or the Faculty Editor with any queries concerning the selection process, at (Editor-in-Chief) or (Faculty Editor).

The word count is essential: we are looking for pieces of maximum 10,000 words, including footnotes. Ideal size is from 5,000 to 7,000 words, including footnotes. All papers should be accompanied by an abstract of maximum 200 words and by full bibliography, including tables of cases and legislation.

A mandatory requirement is that essays are First Class. If you have written a piece in your independent time, please contact two academic members of your Faculty to referee it and provide their contact details in your email. It is also your responsibility to submit the paper to ‘Turn-it-in’ or any other plagiarism detection device your college uses.

The deadline for next year’s volume is the 30th of October, 2009. Three or four slots will be reserved for later entries by students who composed a piece of legal research throughout the academic year. The deadline for late entries is the 29th of January, 2010.


  1. Hi everyone

    Some students have been asking me who the Faculty Editor is for this year. This is Dr Prince Saprai, a new addition to the UCL Laws Faculty. I have provided his email above, if you need to contact him on any matter.

    However, I do suggest you contact me, as I probably have more time in my hands at the moment.

    Take care



  2. Also, to allay the fears of some, we will be considering all essays we receive until the 30th of October. This means, there is no order in time.

    Having said that, sending your essay sooner will mean we have more time to look at it. I have already received four essays for publication!
