IALS Student Law Review

The IALS Student Law Review (ISLRev) is a new electronic open access peer-reviewed law journal established by the Institute on the School of Advanced Study's Open Journals System. The IALS Student Law Review publishes scholarly articles or developing work format and focuses on legal studies within the main expertise of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS), School of Advanced Study (SAS) University of London. The journal is well-placed to build on the Institute's national role in facilitating legal research - developing its own role in publishing articles from research students across the UK and beyond.

IALS Student Law Review

The IALS Student Law Review aims to provide a unique forum for all those who are interested in legal studies to present their scholarly contributions. The unique offering of the IALS Student Law Review is that it allows for publication on multi-dimensional legal studies. In addition, it proactively encourages analytical and comparative studies. Papers that investigate legal issues from single or multiple vantage points whether topically or jurisdictionally are equally welcomed, as are papers examining law-related interdisciplinary work.

The IALS Student Law Review is run by IALS PhD legal research students assisted by an academic member of staff at IALS. The journal is intended as a showcase for legal scholars from postgraduate students and early career scholars to well-established academics; and intends to target both members of the legal academia and practitioners in addition to students. Submissions from legal practitioners are also welcomed. Scholars working on related topics are encouraged to put together several papers for consideration as special themed issues or dossiers.

The IALS Student Law Review is pleased to feature in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

A Special issue is planned for later in 2014 on the Need of Law Reform in the following areas:

  1. Mandatory Reporting of Child Sex Abuse in the UK.
  2. Other Issues of Child Protection Law in the UK.
